From March Foxtel Go will offer more than 50 live channels plus hundreds of TV and movie catch-up titles.
Jim Rudder, Foxtel Executive Director of Product said, “We’re thrilled to expand Foxtel Go to iPhone and the addition of sport across three new channels that can be watched from anywhere you have an internet connection in Australia. By making Foxtel Go available on iPhone, a whole new set of customers will be able to watch their favourite shows while on the train, on holiday, or even just out in the garden.
“More content and more devices has always been the next step in Foxtel’s evolution and the Foxtel Go App rounds out Foxtel’s IPTV offer. In the future, customers can expect to see Foxtel Go on more compatible devices including Mac, PC and Android, and very shortly we will add more live channels including movie channels and popular documentary and
entertainment channel brands.”
FOX Sports on Foxtel Go will now showcase The Ashes and the British and Irish Lions Rugby Tour Live, 5 Live matches each full round of the NRL Telstra Premiership and Live coverage of every match in the 2013 Super Rugby season.
It will also include the Hyundai A-League and Barclays Premier League ahead of their World Cup qualification campaign for Brazil 2014.
FOX Sports Chief Executive, Patrick Delany, said: “This is a real game-changer for sports fans in what is a massive year of sport in 2013.”
“Foxtel Go was already a revolutionary product and it is now a must-have for all sports fans with the inclusion of the three FOX Sports channels, joining Speed and Fuel TV to offer the same incredible sports experience on iPhone and iPad that is available on television through Foxtel,” he said.
Other Live sports will include the Australian cricket tour of India; all four tennis Grand Slams; every Golf Major; the USPGA Tour; the Nationwide and LPGA Tours; and US sports such as the NHL.
With all three FOX Sports channels joining Foxtel Go, the ‘Sports Play’ channel will be removed from the App.
