Today received a text saying the Mobile Foxtel will finish. Telstra suggest we subscribe to Presto. Presto is not a live streaming service so how can I watch Live Sky Business and Sky News? Not only is Presto more expensive, but now data charges apply. Foxtel is not going out of business so why stop the service? This is all just a money grab by Telstra.

This closure is a farce .They want us to subscribe and pay more for what we get. I live in a remote area and do not have an internet connection this service enabled me to have access to show and sports that I normally do not have access to any other way .FOXTEL shame on you. Reconsider this decision and keep this alive. Loss of this service and loss of customers the karma train does bite back.

It's so dissappointing that you guys are closing your Mobile Foxtel service.


Since you guys are suggesting that Foxtel Go is an alternative to the Mobile Foxtel Service, will Foxtel Go be unumetered for Telstra Mobile subscribers on 3G and 4G just like the Mobile Foxtel Service?





Level 2: Rookie

Bit dissapointed, would be nice if you made Presto unmetered to compensate.

I'm confused. Mobile Foxtel is going to be no more. WHY? I have enjoyed this site for years and years, along with my two special needs grand children who watch cartoons over and over even when they are repeated. On the site giving more details about the closure, it states that after the closer of the current site, a update for my android devices will be available or I can download it now. When I click on the link it says at I already have the app. Can someone please inform me if it's going completely or not. If it is then I am going to have two massive melt downs from my grand kids tonight. NOT HAPPY TELSTRA.
