Foxtel from Telstra launches dirt cheap sport and movie packages
If you love your sport and movies then land a bargain on Foxtel's packages through Telstra.
Foxtel has just gone and raised its prices on its own direct packages, keeping the price hike and package restructure very quiet. However, there's a way to still land a good deal courtesy of Foxtel from Telstra.
Telstra, one of the shareholders of Foxtel, hasn't introduced the new pricing structure. Currently you can land the Sports HD + Foxtel Plus package for $50/month and the Movies HD + Foxtel Plus subscription also for $50/month.
This equates to a monthly saving of $24 and $19 for the Sports or Movies bundles respectively. Now obviously that's is a huge difference between the monthly bills.
Honestly, it's shocking that this deal is being offered since Foxtel Plus, the new base Foxtel package, costs $49/month. So for just $1 extra monthly you can land way more content.
The Sports HD bundle in particular is even cheaper than Foxtel Now's package options. In fact the only way you can just get access to the Sports channels for less is through Kayo Sports. You can start watching over 50 sports for free with this 14-day trial. After that you can continue on from just $25/month.
With the Movies bundle you get 11 dedicated channels. If this type of pack is more of what you're after it's best to weigh up all the other streaming services available. Other than Netflix and Stan, Disney+ is about to launch too and will cost less again.
The only real thing to note, as is the case with any type of Foxtel package, you will still incur some type of installation fee.
What's the difference between Foxtel and Foxtel from Telstra?
Other than which provider you're billed from there isn't much else different. Foxtel from Telstra customers aren't eligible for the new loyalty program, Foxtel First. Although they're able to join the Telstra Plus points scheme.
If you think this is a deal that suits, then you might even want to bundle Foxtel with a broadband plan. You can compare Telstra's broadband plans here.
