Compare Foxtel Broadband NBN plans

From your couch to your computer, Foxtel wants to do more than just entertain you.

What you need to know about Foxtel NBN bundles

No longer content with just being Australia's biggest provider of pay TV, Foxtel has decided to take on the telecommunications industry, too. With the rising popularity of online streaming services such as its own Foxtel Go and Foxtel Now, it makes sense that the entertainment giant would want to get in on the broadband game instead of relying on other ISPs to serve its customers.

Spearheading Foxtel's push into the telco business is its range of NBN packages. Available only when bundled with Foxtel's traditional TV service, these packages come in many shapes and sizes, with a variety of channel packs and Internet offerings to choose from. All packages come with home phone line rental included and each is available on either a 12-month or 24-month contract.

What are the different Foxtel NBN bundles?

Foxtel offers a range of NBN bundles to cater for different Internet and entertainment needs. On the NBN side of things, you get unlimited data every month and a Standard Plus NBN connection by default. You can upgrade this to a Premium NBN connection if you wish.

TV options begin with the standard Entertainment Pack, which comes with 45 channels including FOX8, Discovery Channel, CNN and MTV. From there, you can add the Sports TV Pack for access to ESPN and the many Fox Sports channels or upgrade to the Platinum TV Pack for every single Foxtel channel available.

All Foxtel's NBN bundles come with unlimited standard local and national calls every month. If that's not enough talk time for you, Foxtel also offers an unlimited mobile calls pack and a discounted international calls pack, both of which can be added to any of its NBN bundles.

If you're already a Foxtel customer, you won't have to worry about signing up for any additional TV services. Instead, you can simply add an NBN and home phone bundle to your existing subscription.

How much do Foxtel NBN bundles cost?

With so many options available, Foxtel's NBN bundles can get pretty pricey once you start adding all the extras. Even the most basic bundle doesn't come cheap: the Entertainment bundle with a Standard Plus connection works out at $104 a month. Adding more TV packages or upping the NBN connection speed increases this further.

On top of the monthly fee, there are a few charges you need to be aware of. If you're a new Foxtel customer, you'll have to pay a $100 standard TV installation fee to get your Foxtel TV service set up. You'll also have to shell out $125 for an iQ3 set top box.

Regardless of whether you're a new or existing Foxtel customer, your first bill will include a $99 bundle activation fee. You'll also need to purchase a Foxtel Hub modem to use your new Internet connection; this will cost you $140 if you sign up for a 12-month contract, whereas it'll be included at no charge if you sign on for 24 months.

Finally, if you want to cancel your Foxtel bundle before the end of your contract, you'll be hit with an Early Termination Fee for each of the services you've signed up for. Fees won't go higher than $300 each for Foxtel TV and Foxtel NBN services, and $150 for Foxtel's home phone service. The longer you've stayed with your contract, the less you'll pay if you decide to cancel it early.
