Foxtel continues New Experience rollout


Broadcaster Foxtel has confirmed the recently released New Foxtel Experience has completed its roll out to iQ4 set top boxes, and updates to the first 50,000 iQ3 set top boxes are now set to commence.

Foxtel says it anticipates all iQ3 updates will be completed by mid-November.

According to Foxtel, initial feedback from iQ4 customers has been very positive with users reporting the New Foxtel Experience has made finding their favourite content and discovering new content much easier.

Foxtel Chief Strategy and Product Officer Alice Mascia said: “The New Foxtel Experience has opened up an incredible new way for our customers to enjoy the best entertainment. We’re excited to now be underway with iQ3 installations and upgrades so even more Australians can experience Foxtel like never before.

“By the time iQ3 updates are completed in November, more than 1.1 million of our advanced set top boxes in Australian homes will have been updated allowing customers to enjoy Australia’s best TV and on demand all in one place, including Foxtel’s 16,000 hours of on demand programming.

“With the completion of the iQ3 updates in November, we will be adding more apps to the New Foxtel Experience with ABC iView and the SBS On Demand reinforcing Foxtel as the home of the world’s best content.”

Last week Foxtel announced it had extended its partnership with CommScope, selecting the broadband services provider to deliver 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.
