Foxtel has unveiled a new plug-and-play device for Aussies to use with the pay TV giant’s streaming service, Foxtel Now.
The Foxtel Now box features a compact and sleek design, and delivers seamless access to Foxtel Now in HD, along with free-to-air channels via a built-in free-to-air tuner.
It also includes access to SVOD app Stan, as well as free-to-air streaming apps ABC iView, PLUS7 and Tenplay.
The box features built-in Chromecast functionality, allowing viewers to ‘cast’ movies, music and photos from Android or iOS mobile devices, PCs or Macs straight to their TV.
The Foxtel Now box also offers customers access to a world of content, games, music and apps from the Google Play store, as well as the ability to stream at 4K quality with compatible apps.
Foxtel CEO Peter Tonagh said: “After the success of Foxtel Now, we’re delighted to lift the lid on our incredible new Foxtel Now box.
“The sneak peek we shared at the Foxtel Now launch a few months ago created a huge amount of buzz, and we are excited to announce the box’s arrival so quickly.
“Foxtel Now has already proven to be a hit with customers, offering the most flexible and affordable way to experience the best choice in live sport, new movies, TV and complete seasons. With [yesterday’s] launch, that experience gets even better.
“For the first time, Australians can watch Foxtel on their TV with a Foxtel-designed set top box that is completely powered by the internet, offering a no lock-in contract, affordable and flexible way to see Foxtel’s exclusive content both locally produced and from the world’s best entertainment brands.
“Self-installation is easy, removing the need for a technician. Simply bring the box home and sign up to Foxtel Now to start watching.”
Consumers will have to wait until Friday to get their hands on a Foxtel Now box, with a RRP of $99.
