Cheapest Foxtel ever? What you can get for $25 a month
For a limited time you can have the full Foxtel Now experience for the cost of the base pack.
Christmas might still be over a month away, but the gifts have arrived early this year amid the sale season. Foxtel Now has an insane offer that will set you up for an endless summer of streaming.
Between 20 November and 6 December new customers to Foxtel Now will be able to get access to every single channel pack over the next 3 months for just $25 per month. That's the normal cost of the base pack so this deal known as the Foxtel Now Cyber Sale is hot.
What do all of the Foxtel Now packs include?
Included in the Foxtel Now All Packs bundle is the Essentials, Sport, Movies, Drama Extra, Kids and Docos packages. That equates to 74 channels for you to watch.
To give you context that means you'll be able to stream shows from HBO, BBC and Foxtel including The Undoing, Wentworth, Game of Thrones, His Dark Materials, Raised by Wolves, Perry Mason and The Flight Attendant, which releases 26 November.
For those that enjoy sport you'll get entire the Australian summer of cricket including the BBL, as well as F1, the rest of the NFL season including play-offs, the start of the 2020/21 NBA campaign, plus everything else that is shown on Fox Sports, beIN SPORTS and ESPN.
If you're looking to keep the kids entertained over the holidays they will be able to watch the likes of Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CBeebies, Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon. That means they can watch Bluey, iCarly, Paw Patrol and SpongeBob Squarepants.
It doesn't have to be all fiction either as you'll have the full Sky News suite and CNN. The Docos pack means you can learn about the world too via National Geographic, Discovery Channel and History Channel to name a few. Or in terms of actual shows Alaskan Bush People, Deadliest Catch, Who Killed Jeffery Epstein? and Blue Planet.
So long story short, there's something for everyone over the next three months. Foxtel Now is available on PCs/Macs and smartphones/tablets via the Foxtel GO app, as well as Chromecast/AirPlay, PS4, Telstra TV, Sony Android TVs and the Foxtel Now box, so device compatibility shouldn't be an issue.
Is there a catch?
Nope, no catches with this deal, except if you're a former customer you can consider yourself unlucky as you're not eligible for the deal. There's also no 10-day free trial available for this deal which is normally offered to new customers too.
It's also important to remember that at the end of the 3 months your bill will automatically change to the full $104 monthly fee. So we suggest setting a reminder in your calendar to consider if you wish to continue. If you don't no harm, cancelling Foxtel Now is a straightforward process. If you need help with it we have a step-by-step guide that shows you how to cancel.

How does it compare to BINGE, Foxtel iQ and Kayo Sports?
Foxtel iQ starts at $49 per month and that only gives you the base pack which is roughly 50 channels. Given that this Foxtel Now deal is almost half the price and gives you an additional 20+ channels, Foxtel iQ shouldn't even be considered.
With an offer this strong it takes some shine off Kayo Sports. The Foxtel-owned Kayo also costs $25 per month at a minimum. Kayo no doubt offers a better viewing experience than watching sport on Foxtel Now due to its special features. However, considering the offer costs the same and gives you far more over the next three months you'd be better to opt for Foxtel Now.
The maximum BINGE package costs $18 per month so it actually is cheaper than this Foxtel Now offer. So if you're not at all interested in news or sport you could very well just stick with BINGE as it doesn't offer either of them. But if you do enjoy either of those genres then Foxtel Now is the clear choice.
The normal cost of every Foxtel Now pack is $104 per month. So this deal is great considering it's less than a quarter of the standard price. If you do jump on the offer and find that you like it, rather than pay over $100 per month after the initial 3 months you can virtually replicate the entire content offer after by subscribing to BINGE and Kayo Sports.
