Game of Thrones may have ended, but Foxtel is giving Aussies plenty to get excited about, announcing the details of its huge end of financial year sale.
Australia’s traditional Pay TV provider is often criticised for its prices, but if you’re interested in signing up for a year, you could save more than $500!
Here is a breakdown of what Foxtel is offering in its EOFY sale, as well as what savings you can expect if you sign up.
Foxtel’s EOFY Sale
New subscribers will receive the first two months free on any 12-month plan, as well as free installation (normally $100) and a free iQ4 set top box (normally $125), with no upfront costs.
Foxtel’s EOFY sale is valid until 30 June, 2019, with sign up available online. All plans must be paid via direct debit, with cancellations fees applicable – meaning you won’t simply be able to watch Foxtel for free for two months!
The free bonanza means customers could save as much as $503, assuming they purchase the Platinum HD pack.
Foxtel 12-Month Plans
With a number of channels available for you to tune into, Foxtel has varying plans to suit your viewing preferences, whether you’re into your dramas, your sport, or you’re looking for something to keep the kids entertained.
Foxtel’s 12-month plans include:
- Drama + Entertainment – $49 a month and includes 50 channels, such as National Geographic, BBC First and Fox8.
- Sport HD + Entertainment – $68 a month and includes 57 channels, such as MTV, ESPN and Fox Sports.
- Sport + Drama + Entertainment – $78 a month and includes 62 channels, such as Fox League, Fox Footy and Fox Showcase.
- Platinum HD – $139 a month and includes 95 channels, such as Cartoon Network, the History Channel and Premiere Movies.
Foxtel coverage includes hit shows such as Wentworth, Big Little Lies and America’s Got Talent, while you can also tune into new movies including Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and Boy Erased, while your favourite sports such as the NRL, AFL and Supercars are also available.
If you’re looking for a new series to binge, or you’re hoping to stay up to date with the sports results, services such as Foxtel are often the go-to for many, although you’ll have to be careful with what plan you sign up to, as you may be paying for channels and packages that you may not need to.
With Aussie households spending an average of $46 a month on Pay TV and streaming services, according to a Canstar Blue survey, it’s best to think carefully before signing up to an entertainment package or streaming service.
