Better late than never, Foxtel has upgraded its Foxtel Go app with some features we’ve been waiting for for a while – albeit with a few big caveats. Jump in here for all the details on the upgraded app.
Not to be confused with the standalone Foxtel Now streaming service, Foxtel Go is the app for those with a full Foxtel streaming subscription, which can be used to watch their content on mobile devices. The recent update features both a new look and added support for HD streaming, Chromecast and Airplay.
Unfortunately the added support for casting is only available for Multiroom subscribers: a package add-on that is anywhere from $15 to $25 extra per month.
Rest assured, single-screen customers: you still get HD content at least.
Recent reviews of the app on Google Play suggest some customers are having difficulty with the app freezing or refusing to connect since the update. Comments from Foxtel support say that “some devices are unable to access the HD streams,” though hopefully this issue will be fixed sooner rather than later.
