    Is there any facility within the Foxtel Play package that allows me to record live TV?


    • Staff | April 21, 2017

      Hi Guna,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      In order to watch Foxtel’s pay TV service, you’re going to need a Foxtel personal video recorder. Depending on your package or budget, that means either the Foxtel iQ2 or Foxtel iQ3 recorder.

      The Foxtel iQ2, formerly known as the iQHD, is an HD box capable of recording up to 30 hours of HD content, with live TV pausing and three tuners so you can record two channels while watching a third.

      Meanwhile, the iQ3 is the current premium offering from Foxtel, with three times the recording space of the iQ2, plus intelligent suggestions based on your viewing habits, the ability to return to the start of a program with a single button press and the ability to record three channels while watching a fourth.

      To see the full breakdown please visit this page –

      Hope this information helped.

      Hi Gail,

      Thanks for your question.

      Kindly note that you can register up to three devices on a single Foxtel Play account (but only one Xbox One). You can then watch content on any two devices at the same time. You can change the registered devices up to once a month.

      If you like to check the available Foxtel plans, you can visit this page.

    Since I retired I am traveling for several months a year. Can I suspend my Foxtel for this time? What are the rules, if this is allowable?

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your question.

      I’ve just confirmed with Foxtel and they do offer the option to suspend your account for $5 per month instead of your monthly fee, however, they can only offer this once every 12 months and for a maximum of 3 months. Alternatively you may wish to disconnect your Foxtel (and return your Foxtel equipment) and then reconnect when you return. But there are sign up fees that may be applicable.

      Hi Elaine,

      Thanks for reaching out and for leaving an honest feedback.

      While we understand how you feel about Foxtel rates, customers also get to enjoy a number of benefits with Foxtel such as stress-free connection and 24/7 customer support.

    Unfortunately, Foxtel no longer gives discounts to seniors card holders.

      Hi Diane,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can get your Foxtel account transferred to your new address, though this may incur a fee.

      To make this change you will need to contact Foxtel direct to first see what TV and Broadband services are available at the new address. Then, if you’re happy with your options you can continue the process to transfer your subscription over.

      Your can contact Foxtel for more information on this here.

      I hope that helps!

      Hi Rita,

      Thanks for your comment.

      If you will not contact Foxtel to discontinue your free trial, they will automatically renew your subscription. So your HD package is what you’ll be charged ongoing. If you would like to downgrade your subscription package, you’ll need to contact Foxtel on 131 999.

      Hope this helps.


      I hope this helps.
