Broadcaster Foxtel has extended its partnership with CommScope, selecting the broadband services provider to deliver its New Foxtel Experience to subscribers of its TV and on-demand movie services across Australia.

The deal sees New Foxtel Experience leveraging CommScope technology to deliver thousands of hours of TV and on-demand movies as well as access to Netflix for subscribers through Foxtel’s iQ4 set-top box.

CommScope says its professional services group worked with Foxtel to deliver the iQ4’s full-stack software platform, which integrates to multiple back-office systems to provide a seamless broadcast and IP connected user experience.

“The iQ4combines broadcast satellite and IP capabilities in a single, powerful device capable of delivering 4K broadcast resolution, 802.11ac Wi-Fi®, and a 1TB hard-drive—allowing subscribers to watch what they want, when they want, the way it was meant to be watched,” CommScope says.

“Our work with Foxtel highlights our continued leadership and combined expertise in professional services and software integration,” said Steve McCaffery, senior vice president of Services Providers, International, CommScope.

“We are setting a new standard for the television experience by combining the latest technology in support of the growing number of video formats that consumers enjoy.

“Foxtel’s new iQ4 user interface brings it all together in a single, seamless experience, and we’re delighted by its positive reception in Australia.”
