Foxtel from Telstra, Foxtel Now, Foxtel Play & the Foxtel App

What is the difference between Foxtel Now and Foxtel from Telstra?
Foxtel Now is the flexible, more accessible way to stream Foxtel instantly to your devices. Foxtel Now offers five distinct base packs: Drama, Pop, Documentaries, Lifestyle and Kids channels. There are also two premium packs: Sports and Movies.


Foxtel from Telstra is the premium broadcast service. With Foxtel from Telstra on iQ3, you can effortlessly record, rewind and watch live sport, movies and shows in HD. Our entry-level Entertainment Pack covers 40 channels across drama, news, music and even something for the kids.


Other packs available for purchase include: Movies, Docos, Kids, Drama, and Entertainment Plus. Your entertainment needs are sorted with the latest in HBO drama (Game of Thrones) and Foxtel Originals (A Place to Call Home). For our avid sporting fans, get the best choice of live sport with Fox Sports, ESPN, and beIN Sports available as part of the Sport Pack! What’s more?  Stream your favourite shows and complete seasons from your packs via the Foxtel App.


Would Foxtel Now or Foxtel from Telstra suit me better?

Foxtel from Telstra on iQ3 provides more flexibility with 7 channel packs to choose from. Alternatively, customers can get the Platinum HD package for the full Foxtel from Telstra experience. However, Foxtel from Telstra requires installation and a set-top box.

Otherwise, if you’re not too worried about all the additional channels, or if either cable or satellite installation is accessible at your home, then Foxtel Now could be the right option for you.

Do I get Foxtel Now since I already have Foxtel from Telstra?
Foxtel Now
and Foxtel from Telstra are 2 distinct services, and you will need a separate subscription for each. Foxtel from Telstra provides the widest range of content and with the iQ3 you can effortlessly record, rewind and watch live sport, movies & shows in high definition. All you need is an internet connection. Foxtel Now is a streaming service so you can use on your mobile or tablet.

What happened to Foxtel Play?
Foxtel Now is the re-branded and updated version of Foxtel Play with the same existing packs and pricing.

What do I use the Foxtel App for?

The Foxtel App is part of your Foxtel from Telstra subscription. You can watch live or stream your favorite shows or sporting event from your package on the go. Never miss a moment, and use the remote record to have your entertainment ready for when you get home! (Data charges may apply).

Customers with Foxtel Now will not have access to the Foxtel App
