Foxtel today announced that it has begun offering services on the nbn™ network to Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) serviceable customers. The move marks Foxtel’s initial push to offer nbn™ services to new and current subscribers, which will accelerate in the coming months.

nbn™ services will strengthen Foxtel’s commitment to deliver high quality, reliable streaming of its internet delivered services across iQ3, Foxtel Go, Foxtel’s on demand programming and other popular video steaming, social media and gaming applications.

Andrew Lorken, Executive Director of Broadband said, “With today’s launch on the nbn™ network, we’re taking our broadband service to the next level. When our customers couple Foxtel’s premium movies, TV shows and sport with our unlimited broadband bundles they will receive their content on broadband that is purpose built for entertainment. We think this truly differentiates Foxtel from other broadband providers in an increasingly competitive market and we aim to be the broadband supplier of choice for those customers seeking a combination of the highest quality internet access and the best content.”

Foxtel is now offering its best ever value range of broadband, TV and home phone bundles, with access to the nbn™ network for FTTP serviceable customers, and via ADSL connections.

New customers can currently sign up to an unlimited broadband, home phone and TV bundle, with the Entertainment pack, from as little as $111 per month on a 24 month plan. Existing Foxtel TV subscribers can add an unlimited broadband bundle to a non-Platinum HD pack from only $85~ extra per month on a 24 month plan, or only $75^ extra per month on a 24 month plan when added to a Platinum HD pack.

Foxtel also confirmed that its ADSL broadband bundles are ‘nbn™ from Foxtel Ready’, meaning current and new customers on Foxtel ADSL broadband plans today will be able to easily switch their service to an nbn™ from Foxtel service, without needing to recontract, once the nbnTM from Foxtel service becomes available at their home.
