Watch IndyCar Series on Foxtel iQ
If you have a Foxtel iQ subscription including the Sports HD pack, you are all set. If not, you need the Sports HD pack ($25/month) plus the Foxtel Plus package ($49/month). At $74 per month, it is considerably more expensive than Kayo.
Foxtel is the only broadcaster in Australia that offers users access to 4K sports content. You may also be up for some potential installation costs, though Foxtel iQ deals are also regularly available
Stream 2020 IndyCar Series via Foxtel Now
Foxtel Now is the pay TV giant's digital streaming service. To stream content you need the Essentials pack in addition to the Sport pack, for a total of $54/month. So while it's cheaper than Foxtel iQ, you're still paying double the price of Kayo Sports.
