In January, Foxtel promised that its Foxtel Go mobile viewing app would be released as an iPhone app. That app officially appeared this week, along with an enhanced range of channels for Foxtel Go, including the three main Foxtel sports channels.
As with the existing iPad app, you’ll need a Foxtel subscription to access the service, and what you see will depend on your package. Sport is one of the main drivers of pay TV subscriptions, so the addition of Fox Sports 1, 2 and 3 will be welcome for people who do pay for that. It’s also one of the few ways to legally watch streamed mobile sports on your device.
Foxtel has promised Android, PC and Mac clients for Go later this year. The existing limit of no more than two active Foxtel Go devices at one time per subscription is likely to remain in place, and you can’t use the service overseas.
