Foxtel Debuts IPTV Service

MUMBAI: Foxtel has launched a new Internet TV service, Foxtel Play, which allows customers with a broadband connection to watch programming live or on a catch-up basis.

The series is currently live, ahead of its official launch on 11 August. Foxtel Play is delivered over the Internet, initially eligible on Samsung Smart TVs, Xbox 360 and computers. Customers can watch a range of sports, drama, entertainment, documentary and movie channels live or on demand with no lock-in contract or installation costs. The packages feature more than 40 live channels, including Showcase, Fox8, History, National Geographic, FX, MTV and more. There are also hundreds of VOD titles.

The Foxtel Go service will be available to Foxtel Play customers as part of their subscription. This will allow customers to access Foxtel Go on up to two registered devices, including iPads and select Samsung smartphones and tablets.

Foxtel chief executive Richard Freudenstein said, "We're thrilled to offer Foxtel Play as a new way to introduce more people to our unparalleled programming. Our core set-top box subscribers are already experiencing great features, including Foxtel Go and On Demand. Now, Foxtel Play gives even more Australians who might not be able to access the core service the freedom and flexibility to enjoy Foxtel across multiple connected devices and at price points to suit different budgets and tastes."

Foxtel's executive director of product Jim Rudder added, "Foxtel Play broadens our internet TV service and gives customers a Foxtel internet TV offering across a host of devices. We've also had fantastic feedback to Foxtel Go since its launch and have responded by upping the number and type of devices customers can use to access it."
