Triple-play bundles from Foxtel

February 2, 2015

Australian operator Foxtel has confirmed the availability of its new subscription TV, Broadband and Home Phone bundles which bring together its subscription cable and satellite TV service with new Broadband and Home Phone services delivered over one of Australia’s largest telecommunications networks.

It claims the move will see its customers getting even greater value and simplicity from a single Foxtel subscription for their TV, Broadband and Home Phone. Foxtel also announced the arrival of its new Broadband home network gateway, the Foxtel Hub, designed to deliver fast household WiFi speeds to Foxtel Broadband subscribers.

Existing Foxtel TV customers can maximise their Foxtel experience by bundling broadband Internet access, plus stay connected with family and friends with unlimited standard local and national calls, starting from an extra A$65 per month on a 12 or 24 month 50GB plan when added to their Foxtel TV package.

New customers can sign up to Foxtel’s new subscription TV, Broadband and Home Phone bundles featuring broadband Internet access and unlimited standard local and national calls along with Foxtel’s TV Entertainment Pack, featuring 43 popular news, general entertainment, factual and lifestyle channels, starting from $90 per month on a 12 or 24 month 50GB plan.

Foxtel’s Broadband Bundles offer a selection of options including 50GB, 100GB, 200GB and 500GB monthly data packages, with no peak or off peak data limit. Foxtel TV customers can enjoy no data download limits for Foxtel TV on Foxtel Go and Anytime when connected to Foxtel Broadband. Presto and Foxtel Play customers also enjoy this benefit when connected to Foxtel Broadband.

Richard Freudenstein, Foxtel CEO said the operator was passionate about bringing Australians the best entertainment experience possible and had worked tirelessly to make that experience more accessible through its investments in pricing and packaging for cable and satellite customers and through its new movies and TV streaming service, Presto.

“Today, we take that effort to the next level by providing our most compelling offer yet with our new Foxtel Broadband and Home Phone bundles. Foxtel Broadband is specially designed with entertainment and video in mind and maximises the value of a Foxtel subscription through flexibility, customisation of services and a simplified customer experience.”

Foxtel Broadband subscribers will also have access to the Foxtel Hub, Foxtel’s new WiFi modem purpose built for internet and video streaming. The Foxtel Hub is designed to deliver fast WiFi speeds, great in-home coverage and easy streaming to multiple devices. The Foxtel Hub connects easily to Internet-enabled iQ and iQHD set-top-boxes to maximise access and enjoyment of Foxtel’s Anytime service.

Bundles can be tailored up or down based on household Internet usage or TV programming preferences, such as adding sports, movies, drama, kids, or taking all TV channel packs with Platinum HD.

Foxtel Broadband is available delivered over Telstra’s ADSL network. Foxtel intends launching Broadband and Home Phone bundles over the National Broadband Network later this year.
