In 2018 Foxtel are focusing on delivering their strongest shows into the On Demand section. As part of this strategy Foxtel will be reviewing the number of the channels they carry.
From 1 March 2018, key shows from the FX channel, including The Walking Dead, will be moved to showcase on channel 114. This will see showcase become a drama ‘super channel’ carrying Foxtel original dramas and exclusive, first-run hits, express from the US in one location.
Other FX shows and complete seasons will join the library of content available through Foxtel On Demand, meaning you’ll be able to stream them when you want, on the go or at home, and on any device.
As part of this process, the FX channel will close on 28 February 2018.
Also closing on this day are the Eurosportnews and Nat Geo People channels. Though you can catch all your sports news on the Fox Sports News channel and you can continue to enjoy world class documentaries and entertainment on National Geographic and National Geographic On Demand.
If you have any concerns about these changes or would like to find out more please call 1800288943.
