Foxtel has announced a series of initiatives to make life a little easier for Australians as they spend more time at home to limit the spread of COVID-19. Effective from now until 31 May, Foxtel customers will have access to:
- More content with access to Foxtel’s full range of Drama, Entertainment, Lifestyle, Documentaries, Reality and KidsTV channels and on demand libraries.
- Customers will have access to Multiscreen4, giving expanded access to watch on up to two additional devices at the same time including casting the Foxtel GOapp to additional TVs.
- Foxtel Now customers will have Drama Extra, Docos, Pop, Lifestyle and Kids added to their Essentials, Pop or Lifestyle packs.
- Unlimited broadband data for all Foxtel Broadband and Foxtel nbn customers who are on monthly data allowances for streaming and home internet without limits.
The initiatives are available to Foxtel customers including those that subscribe to Foxtel through Telstra and Optus. This includes new series such as Mrs America starring Cate Blanchett and Rose Byrne, mystery thriller Devs and new seasons of Westworld, The Walking Dead, Outlander, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Selling Houses Australia, Cosmos: Possible Worlds and The Great British Bake Off.
Customers will also be able to catch up on entire seasons and box sets of recent hit series such as Game of Thrones, Succession, Tim Minchin’s Upright and His Dark Materials, along with comedy evergreens including Friends, Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and Seinfeld.
Foxtel Group Chief Executive Officer Patrick Delany said: “Our call centres are working hard to prioritise callers with an immediate need and we appreciate our customers’ patience and support as we navigate the current challenges ourselves.”
Customers do not need to activate the changes. The additional tiers of content, multiscreen and unlimited broadband have been opened up by Foxtel allowing customers to enjoy the content and features immediately until 31 May.
