Foxtel launches biggest on demand catch-up TV service
Foxtel has expanded its On Demand service to create Australia’s largest catch-up TV service for subscribers who may have missed the latest episode of their favourite program.
The new expanded catch-up service is available to Foxtel customers who connect their Foxtel iQ or iQHD set-top box to their home broadband connection.
There is an Ethernet port on the back of the set top box for those with a cable close to their box.
Once connected the Foxtel catch up service is free but, because it is accessed through your home’s broadband connection, it will have an impact on your monthly data allowance.
Users can catch up with movies and TV shows from across 50 Foxtel channels including Game of Thrones (Showcase), The Vampire Diaries (FOX8), Sons of Anarchy (Showcase), The Walking Dead (FX), True Blood (Showcase), Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Cartoon Network) and Project Runway AllStars (Arena).
These catch up shows will be available from midnight on the day of the original broadcast.
Once it is added to a customer’s planner, the program can be watched as many times as they want for 28 days.
“Foxtel provides its customers with the best entertainment experience possible, and now we’re providing even greater value for their subscription with the introduction of our multi-channel catch up service,” said Brendon Moo, General Manager of Foxtel On Demand.
“By simply using their Foxtel remote, subscribers can catch up on programs they may have missed from over 50 Foxtel channels they know and love, and best of all it is all free with their relevant channel subscription.
“Connecting the internet to their internet-enabled iQ set-top-box will provide access to over 1000 TV shows and movies to choose from at any one time. Content will be updated daily, and we aim to add more channels over time.”
