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, plus watch a selection of that content on demand.

With Foxtel Now, you can register up to five devices to your account and stream on two of those devices concurrently. Phones and tablets are supported, so you can bring your favourite shows with you wherever you go. Just remember, if you're watching on a mobile device and you're not connected to a Wi-Fi network, streaming Foxtel Now programming will eat into your data.

    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

      What FTA channels you have access to through Foxtel are dependant on your location and available technology. You can checkFoxtel’s list of channel availability.

      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.
