Foxtel Go comes to Android, PC/Mac Featured

Foxtel today pushed forth onto even more screens, coming to Samsung tablets and smartphones as well as PC and Mac computers.

The pay TV giant also said it has decided to up the number of devices that can be registered to Foxtel Go from two to three.

The expansion to new devices adds to the existing app lineup of iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini, however strangely the new app is compatible only with Samsung's Galaxy S3, not the newer S4 (or S2, for that matter).

In terms of tablets, at this stage it seems the app is only compatible with Samsung's Note 10.1 (and of course Apple's iPad range).

Foxtel said in a comment on Facebook that they're "working on" compatibility for the Galaxy S4.

Foxtel Go itself is a streaming service available to subscribing Foxtel customers and brings 59 live channels and over 50 channels for on demand catch up viewing.

Jim Rudder, Foxtel Executive Director of Product said, “we’re really pleased with the response we’ve had since Foxtel Go launched late last year. Through our innovation, Foxtel continues to add value for our subscribers and the increase in the number and type of devices consumers can use to access it goes a long way towards delivering on our promise to help even more customers enjoy Foxtel in the home or on the move.”

"Foxtel Play customers will also be enabled to receive Foxtel Go included with their subscription. The launch isn’t long off for those who have been looking forward to it and subscribers will be able to view their entitled channels based on the channels they subscribe to on the Foxtel Play service."

For selected Samsung Android devices the app is available via the Samsung App Store, while if you’re on an iPhone or iPad, go to the Apple App Store.

Foxtel is currently half owned by News Corporation and Telstra.
