Every question you have about Foxtel Now answered


All your Foxtel Now support questions answered.

If you’re thinking about getting Foxtel Now or Foxtel Go then you might have a few questions. That’s perfectly normal, these are both very new services.

Fortunately, finder.com.au is here to help you cut through the jargon and get the answers you need to make the best choice for you.

If there’s anything else you’d like to know what you can’t find below, feel free to ask your question in the comments box below.

First things first: What is Foxtel Now?

Foxtel Now is an Internet television service. If you have ever used Netflix or Stan then you’ll have an idea of what Foxtel Now is all about. It lets you watch all your favourite Foxtel TV shows and movies live (and sometimes on demand).

Foxtel Now lets you register up to five devices (and stream on two concurrently), including mobile devices so you can bring your favourite shows with you wherever you go. Just remember, if it's a mobile device and you're not connected to Wi-Fi, streaming Foxtel Now programming will eat into your data.

Foxtel Go is the mobile command centre for your Foxtel package. Think of it as a nifty remove control centre. Through the Foxtel Go app you can control your television, including checking TV guides, setting recordings and accessing your parental controls.
All you will need is an internet connection and a compatible device, then you can unlock a wide range of television and movies.

Just remember: if you use Foxtel Go you will also need your Foxtel ID and password to login.

YES. You can watch episodes of Game of Thrones on Foxtel Now as they get released. You can also catch up seasons one through four on demand.
YES. Foxtel Now works a bit differently to some of the other Internet TV providers. You get to choose different entertainment packages you'd like, with sports being one of the premium options available. You'll get access to content from channels like Fox Sports, ESPN and Eurosport, which includes coverage of NRL, Rugby Union, A-League and more.

Don’t worry if you lose your password or username, it happens all the time. Simply contact Foxtel online or over the phone to receive your reminders.

You can access Foxtel Now through your Smart TV, laptop, Xbox One, Playstation 4, tablet or smartphone.
You can register your Foxtel memberships on up to five devices, and even watch different content on up to two at a time. This will come in very handy in larger households.
Foxtel Now will cost between $10 and $55 per month depending on which channel packages you wish to access. This does not include the Premium Movies and Sport add-ons, which cost $20 and $29 extra per month, respectively. All up, Foxtel Now will set you back $104 with everything included.
Foxtel Now comes with no lock-in contract. You pay monthly and can cancel your service at any time. It’s this flexibility that makes streaming services so popular, and why many people are turning to them over traditional television.
It’s difficult to say really, as this will depend on your viewing habits and usage. If you are interested in getting an internet TV package though, we’ve reviewed lots of them, including a full library comparison.

    I have Foxtel IQ and have been told I can watch Free-To-Air TV through my Foxtel connection. Is this possible and if so what do I have to do?

    Thank you

      Hello Warwickk,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes Foxtel go is included in your monthly fee. As part of your subscription with Foxtel you can start watching Foxtel using our Foxtel Go App once you receive a notification. What that means is you don’t have to wait to get installed. You can watch your favorite programs depending on your package selected, as soon as you receive a notification from them. (Please note that as these services require an internet connection, data charges may apply.)

      I hope this helps.

      Hi Vinayak,

      You should not have any problem using your Xbox One Media Remote to control Foxtel Play. However, the app does not have any extra catalogue listings on the Xbox One.
