So, you've been lured over to Foxtel Now. Maybe it's the overwhelming supply of Aussie sports that has served as the carrot. Or perhaps it was the stick that is "Foxtel Now owns exclusive rights to Game of Thrones and this is the ONLY legal way for you to watch it in this country". Whatever your motivation, we're here to help you with a quick and concise setup guide.
First thing's first. You'll need to get yourself hooked up with an account. Point your favourite browser to www.foxtel.com.au/now and click on the 'Sign Up Now' button. From here you'll have a decision to make as Foxtel Now isn't a one-price-fits-all service.
Your options are threefold. An outlay of $25 per month will get you the Essentials Pack that includes the Pop and Lifestyle channels. Increase your commitment to $40 per month (for 6 months) and you can get the aforementioned Essentials and a Sports Pack. Last and certainly not numerically least, plopping down A$79/mo will give you access to Essentials and Sport, plus Movies, Docos and Kids (and this is also a 6-month contract).
Click the deal you wish to go with, and then complete the sign-up process by entering your personal details, preferred email address and a password you want for the account. Next, hit 'Sign Up and Continue' and enter your payment details on the second page that loads up. Do all that and you're ready for some Foxtel binge-watch action.

The good news is that Foxtel Now runs not only on the services own dedicated "Foxtel Now Box" hardware, but also a wide array of third-party platforms. Assuming you meet the minimum network requirements (2.5Mbps broadband or 180Kbps 3G/4G) you can use Foxtel Now on the following devices:
Once your Foxtel Now Box has been delivered, use the provided cables to plug it into a power source and plug the HDMI cord into your TV (note the name of said port, be it HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc). With the AV/AUX of your TV set to the corresponding HDMI channel, power on the Box, enter your Wi-Fi details and then feed in the login details of your account. With all that done you're ready to watch.
This route is not so different from the Now Box option. Simply plug your Chromecast into an HDMI port on your Smart TV and then get power to the device via either a USB port on the TV or through a power adaptor. Next, download the Google Home app onto your iOS/Android device and make sure that same said device is on the exact same Wi-Fi signal as the Chromecast. The Foxtel Now welcome page will appear on your TV at which point you can essentially use your device as a remote to watch Foxtel Now.

The official Foxtel Now app can be easily downloaded via the App Store, iTunes and Google Play. Simply open up the marketplace of choice on your app, enter "Foxtel now" into the search field and click 'Get" or 'Install'. Once it's installed, getting connected is as simple as tapping on the icon and entering your Foxtel Now email and password.
Much like the mobile/tablet instructions, you need only navigate to the App section of your Samsung Smart HUB or Sony's store. Enter the search string "Foxtel Now" to locate and install the app you need. Once it's been installed, you can enter your sign in details to get watching.
This is the easiest option of the bunch. Steer your browser to www.foxtel.com.au and hover your mouse over the 'Log In' button. Select the Foxtel Now option from the drop-down menu that appears to be taken to another page. When prompted, enter your login details and you're off and racing.
Power up your console of choice and navigate to the PlayStation Store or the Xbox Marketplace. Look for a section of the store entitled TV/Streaming and click on the Foxtel Now app to download it to your dashboard like you would any digitally bought game. Click into the icon, enter your details and get watching.
Quick note for PS4 users: you'll need to have HDCP enabled before Foxtel Now will work (it's an anti-piracy measure). To do this, scroll all the way right on your home screen to 'Settings'. Then scroll downward in the list that appears to 'System'. Find the HDCP checkbox and make sure that it's ticked.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
