Foxtel NBN is not currently available via Finder. You can visit their website at www.foxtel.com.au for more information or compare alternative options available below.

With any pack, you can add on a standard Netflix subscription for $12 per month on a month-to-month plan.

How do Foxtel's NBN plans compare?

Since you can't get a Foxtel NBN plan unless it's tied with a Foxtel entertainment package, we've taken a look at how their Foxtel Plus NBN bundle compares to a couple other bundled options on the market.

Telstra has options to add Foxtel onto their NBN plans, but as you can see, you'll be paying more with Telstra than you would if you went straight with Foxtel. Optus also gives you the option to add Foxtel to their NBN plans for an additional $25 a month, however we've chosen to compare Foxtel's entertainment extra with a Fetch TV bundle. On Dodo's NBN plans, you can add a Fetch subscription for an extra $25/month as long as you're in a 12 month contract with them. It does make their monthly costs cheaper than both Foxtel options, but it really depends if you want what Foxtel has to offer. If it's Foxtel you want, you're better off going directly with the provider.
