AUSTRALIA: FOXTEL TV Coming Only for Xbox 360

Microsoft and Foxtel have combined forces today to announce details on their new partnership which will soon offer Australians the chance to watch pay television via their Xbox 360 console using the FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE service. At this stage they have no plans to launch FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE on any other gaming consoles.

FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE is an exciting new partnership offering a brand new way of receiving FOXTEL – over the internet and direct to television sets through Xbox 360’s online service, Xbox LIVE.

If you’re an Xbox LIVE subscriber, you will be able to watch a selection of FOXTEL channels on your Xbox entertainment console. FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE will also provide you with a wide range of Video-on-Demand (VoD) services.

Launching later this year, it means new subscribers can watch FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE without the need for a FOXTEL set-top-box.

FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE will be accessible in FOXTEL areas across Australia to all homes with an Xbox 360 and a broadband internet connection. All you need is an Xbox 360, an Xbox Gold subscription and a FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE subscription.

When will FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE be available?
FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE will go live later this year. We will make package and pricing details available closer to launch.

How will I get FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE?
All you need is an Xbox 360, an Xbox Gold subscription, a broadband connection, and a FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE subscription. When it becomes available, simply download the FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE application and then subscribe online to the FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE service.

What will FOXTEL customers actually get and how much will it cost?
FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE offers consumers the opportunity of a new way to access a number of high quality live subscription TV channels, On Demand content and catch-up television.

We’ll be able to give you all the specifics like content and pricing closer to launch.

What about download costs – who will pay for those?
Download costs will be dependant on the Internet Service Provider.

Will you also launch this FOXTEL service across Playstation 3 (PS3) and Nintendo Wii?
At this stage we have no plans to launch FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE on any other gaming consoles.

Will there be any difference between the content available on the FOXTEL Download PC service and content available on Xbox LIVE?
FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE is a different service to FOXTEL Download and will provide live television over the internet direct to customer’s TV sets (via Xbox). FOXTEL by Xbox will offer customers 30 channels, Movies On Demand, and catch up TV. We’ll have a detailed list of confirmed content when we launch the service.

How much storage will I need to run FOXTEL?
Because it’s streamed LIVE TV, you won’t require any storage.

What are the minimum broadband speed requirements for FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE?
We recommend 1.5 Mbps broadband connection to ensure you get the best experience.

Will I be able to play back videos I’ve already purchased on my PC?
No. The FOXTEL Download service is separate to the FOXTEL by Xbox LIVE service, therefore you won’t be able play back video you’ve purchased on your PC using the Xbox 360. We’ll be able to let you know more details on video playback when we launch the service
