Foxtel, Cable and NBN

Answered

I am currently using Foxtel from Telstra through my HFC cable connection and I am wondering what happens when the NBN is connected at the end of the year?

 

I was told that Foxtel through the HFC cable will be turned off and I have to get a Satellite dish connection so I can continue to watch Foxtel.

 

I am living in a Housing Queensland public housing unit block so what am I looking at?

 

So will I need a satellite connection or will I continue to use the HFC cable for Foxtel?

 

And if I need a satellite dish, will they need to install a satellite dish for each unit or will they do a 'One dish feeds all units' type of setup?

 

Thank you.

Re: Foxtel, Cable and NBN

Eventually you'll have to move to satellite. One dish can serve multiple rooms.

Alternatively you could look at foxtel Now which is similar to Netflix in that you pay month to month with no lock in contract. You just choose the packages you want and it uses your internet connection.
