Yes I have three foxtel boxes. You only need to set up the second box with the same ID and password you used for the first Foxtel Now box. There not only good for watching foxtel content they are a cheap alternative to a Android TV set top box. When I bought mine they were only $49 at the Foxtel Now ebay store. They have inbuilt Chromecast and support most of the streaming services. The only problem is they can only be used with a valid foxtel Now ID.

 

If you use the same foxtel now ID the only cost is the hardware $99 or you can get them cheaper second hand. I think the minimum cost of a new ID is $25 per month. Use can have 5 devices with same ID and use up to two at same time.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
