Foxtel’s long-rumoured download service and an enhanced range of channels will finally roll out next week, but there’s already a fair bit of information online about what’s coming.
Lifehacker will be at Foxtel’s launch press conference on Tuesday, where full details of the download service and the new channels will be unveiled. At TV Tonight, David Knox has rounded up what we already know about the added channels, which cover the full spectrum of movies, drama and factual programming. He’s also got a summary of what the basic download service is likely to offer: a file that needs to be played back through specific Foxtel-branded player software, and which will expire in 7 days. The service is expected to kick off in October.
