According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Foxtel’s new internet pay-TV service has gone live, sidestepping the need for users to have a cable or satellite connection. Anybody with a broadband connection and a PC, Mac, Xbox 360 or eligible Samsung smart TV will have access to the new service, called Foxtel Play.
It offers four streams: entertainment, documentary, drama and kids, priced at AUD$25 for one stream, AUD$35 for two, AUD$45 for three and AUD$50 for all four. Sport and movies cost an additional AUD$25 each.
The report adds that the streams will feature more than 40 live channels, including Fox Sports 1, 2 and 3, Showcase, FOX8, Arena, Lifestyle and National Geographic. Foxtel chief executive Richard Freudenstein said Foxtel Play will expand access to people who cannot get a cable or satellite connection. Like regular Foxtel, the new packages will also include Foxtel Go, which provides programming on smartphones and tablets. Users will be able to tether two additional devices to their subscription.
