Olympics streaming separate from Foxtel subscription

Does Foxtel offer an Olympics streaming package for those who don't have a television?  I'd pay to stream the Olympics to my PC or tablet but don't have a television so don't want a Foxtel cable package.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

That's not FOXTEL's business model, as far as I can see. You can have the Olympics streamed to your tablet with the Foxtel LONDON 2012 App, but the ‘price’ you have to pay is having an ongoing residential FOXTEL subscription (that includes Sports in the package).

Thanks Drat.  That is the answer I was expecting but not the one that I was hoping for Smiley Wink

 

I expect this kind of question will come up more in the future as more and more is available online.  Maybe by the next Olympics!

Hi aac,

 

Welcome to CrowdSupport Smiley Happy

 

There is a Foxtel LONDON 2012 app that will allow you to watch the 8 dedicated channels wherever you are on an iPad or Android tablet (v4+) however you need to be an exisiting Foxtel Residental Sports customer. This is the only way that I have been able to locate, which in your current situation isnt much of a help.
