Foxtel’s latest box is a form fit hub that offers a simple streaming solution.
Foxtel is home to some of the most popular TV shows available right now. Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr. Robot and much more. And thanks to Foxtel's streaming service, Foxtel Now, fans of dragons, zombies and hackers can access premium content with no lock-in contracts, bulky hardware, and painful installation processes. However, those who like to have a home for their entertainment needs may still want a simple plug-and-play solution for their streaming habits. That's where the Foxtel Now box comes in.
What does the Foxtel Now Box do?
The Foxtel Now box is a small streaming box that looks somewhat like Google Home's younger sibling.
The Foxtel Now box is a plug-and-play device with HD streaming (for selected content), Chromecast support and houses streaming apps like Stan (subscription required), ABC iView and YouTube in addition to free-to-air TV (with a connect FTA aerial)(. The box also comes packaged with its own proprietary remote.
