Good news for Binge subscribers.
When the platform was launched it was unclear if the 19 linear Foxtel channels (including FOX Showcase, BBC First, FOX One, FOX Arena, UKTV, LifeStyle, BBC Earth) would be blacking out some titles.
But there are no plans to do this, meaning Binge subscribers can watch titles such as new Wentworth and Gogglebox as they broadcast in AEST. This makes Binge great value, although the marketing is driven by the streaming titles.
A Binge spokesperson confirms, “Binge has no current plans to black out content on its linear channels. Our focus is on demand and being able to watch anytime, anywhere, that’s our content proposition and how we market our content.”
You can find the linear channels at the bottom of the Shows tab.
