The Foxtel Play AFL on Xbox channel we noted earlier in the week has gone live today, and is free for existing subscribers for a month. But as we suspected, while the full paid version gets you a lot of football, it doesn’t get you a live grand final.A Foxtel representative confirmed the end of season arrangements to us:
FOXTEL on Xbox 360 will broadcast five LIVE finals series matches on FOOTY PLAY+, with four matches (including the Grand Final) broadcast on delay.
Given that the Grand Final will end up on free-to-air anyway, it’s not necessarily a deal-breaker. But it is worth knowing.
