When Foxtel launched its Foxtel Go app for watching selected Foxtel programs back in November, it was strictly an iPad-only affair. That’s about to change, with Foxtel confirming plans to make the app available on Android, iPhones, Windows and Mac.
In a press release today announcing the availability of movies on the existing Foxtel Go iPad app, Foxtel also confirmed that it plans to make the app multi-platform:
Foxtel Go will also be available next month on iPhone and iPod Touch and soon after that on PC, Mac and Android.
That won’t solve the problem of Foxtel Go only being available if you pay for a regular Foxtel subscription, but it will make it more widely available.
Existing Foxtel customers using Go on their iPad can also now watch a selection of on-demand movies. I’m not sure that will be enough to quell complaints from customers unhappy with the recent revamp of Foxtel’s movie channels, but it’s better than not getting offered movies at all. (That said, if you don’t have any movies as part of your Foxtel package, you won’t be offered them on Foxtel Go either.)
