Foxtel’s mobile streaming app Foxtel Go has returned with a new look.
It brings with it HD streaming, allowing customers watch sports and shows on the go as part of their subscription, at no extra cost.
From this week, multiroom subscribers can also take their big screen experience with them on the go with support now added for Chromecast and AirPlay.
This function comes as part of a Foxtel multiroom subscription.
Customers can register Foxtel Go on multiple devices and watch it on two screens at the same time.
The app is available for download on the App Store for iPads and iPhones. Google Play for Android smartphones and tablets and can be watched on PC via the Google Chrome browser or on Mac using the Safari browser at watch.foxtel.com.au.
Foxtel Go also arrives with new features designed to personalise the viewing experience, including personal Watch Lists, closed captioning and universal Continue Watching across Foxtel Go supported devices.
Patrick Delany, Foxtel CEO, said, “We’ve been working hard at Foxtel to ensure that this year is one like never before. We have momentum behind our push to improve the way our customers enjoy the high quality entertainment experience they are paying for.
“We got things started with our newly secured cricket rights that are set to bowl customers over with no ad breaks during live play starting this November, and our recently announced 4K channel will bring the sights of sport, movies and docos to you like you’ve never seen this coming October.
“Today, we’re bringing a familiar name back to our mobile app, Foxtel Go, and giving it a high-def makeover while adding the ability for our multiroom customers to share it with big screens when you’re away from home. Foxtel is a great entertainment option for a family who can watch it together or rip it apart so each member of the family can watch what they want, where they want and when they want.
“These changes are just the beginning as we continue to make the way customers experience Foxtel better than ever before.”
HD, AirPlay and Chromecast for Foxtel GO come as Foxtel is gearing up for the arrival of its new dedicated 4K channel set to take to the air in October. Foxtel in 4K will be delivered to compatible 4K TVs through its new iQ4 set-top box to Sports HD customers.
