Go, Foxtel: Foxtel Go sees 68 live channels in 2014 Featured


Five new channels are being added to Foxtel’s “Foxtel Go” app from today, with three more channels due from Jan 1, 2014, for a total of 68 channels, and you’ll get the lot if you subscribe to those channels on your regular Foxtel subscription.

Foxtel’s attempt to be the most relevant TV network in Australia, with the most subscription TV channels, coupled with a Netflix-like capability to stream those channels to tablets, smartphones, smart TVs and games consoles, today reaches a new summit with the addition of yet even more channels on Foxtel Go.

Most Foxtel subscriptions now come with the bonus of Foxtel Go, an app for all compatible iOS devices, select Samsung Android-powered smartphones and tablets, PCs and Macs, which not only lets you stream dozens of live TV channels, but dozens of “catch up” TV programming, too.

Today’s announcement see Foxtel Go subscribers gain an additional five new channels, with three more to come from January 1, 2014, albeit with the proviso that the channels in question must be ones that your existing Foxtel subscription gives you access to.

The five new channels launched today include Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, MTV, ESPN and ESPN 2.

Then, in less than 30 days time, Syfy, TVH!TS and the Universal channel are launching too, with most of these new channels available in both “live” and “on demand” formats, for a total of 68 live channels and 56 on demand channels – again, if your subscription lets you watch those channels already (or you upgrade your subscription to include these channels).

Foxtel naturally talks up some of its “programming highlights” over the next two months to tempt existing and new users, including Stargate SG-1 on Syfy, Haunting: Australia, Warehouse 13, CSI, Everyone Loves Raymond, Sanhay and Craig, Sam and Cat, Rabbids, Awkward Season 3, Teen Mom 3, Perception, The Michael J Fox show and several others.

So, if you’ve ever wanted to tell Foxtel where to go, Foxtel Go certainly won’t help you do that, but it will help you watch Foxtel on-the-go.

Now, while that’s a definite no-go while driving, Foxtel Go will help you go and get stuffed with as much mobile televisual content as your eyeballs, your brain and your data limit can handle!

The complete list of Foxtel Go channels, both live and on-demand, can be seen in the two charts below, with the channels listed with a ^ symbol denoting channels not available to “Foxtel Play” subscribers.
