Foxtel Gives Its Mobile Streaming App A Makeover

Pay TV provider Foxtel has brought back the Foxtel GO name for its mobile streaming app, which now offers customers a HD viewing experience at no extra charge.

Foxtel’s ‘Multiroom’ subscribers can also take their big screen experience with them, with support now added for Chromecast and AirPlay on Foxtel GO .

Customers can register Foxtel GO on multiple devices and watch it on two screens at the same time, and new Foxtel customers can start using the app without the need to wait for their main service to be installed.

Foxtel GO is available for download on the App Store, for iPads and iPhones; Google Play for Android smartphones and tablets; and can be watched on PC via the Google Chrome browser or on Mac using the Safari browser at watch.foxtel.com.au.

The app also arrives with other new features such as personal WatchLists, closed captioning and universal ‘continue watching’ across supported devices.

The announcement comes after Foxtel unveiled its dedicated 4K live channel last month.

Patrick Delany, CEO of Foxtel, said: “We’ve been working hard at Foxtel to ensure that this year is one like never before. We have momentum behind our push to improve the way our customers enjoy the high-quality entertainment experience they are paying for.

“We got things started with our newly secured cricket rights that are set to bowl customers over with no ad-breaks during live play starting this November, and our recently announced 4K channel will bring the sights of sport, movies and docos to you like you’ve never seen this coming October.

“Today, we’re bringing a familiar name back to our mobile app, Foxtel GO, and giving it a high-def makeover while adding the ability for our Multiroom customers to share it with big screens when you’re away from home.

“These changes are just the beginning as we continue to make the way customers experience Foxtel better than ever before.”
