Foxtel will finally be releasing their Foxtel Go app for Android. The app will be available from June 3 but only to Samsung phones and tablets. The exclusivity arrangement will be in place until the end of October when availability will be expanded to include other brands of Android devices, however there has been no details regarding which devices the app will be compatible.
The app, which has been available on iOS since last year, allows Foxtel subscribers to stream live and catch-up content to their mobile devices.
In a previous “exclusive” app deal, the Samsung Galaxy S 3 launched with Flipboard included with a 2 month exclusivity period, however the APK for the app was leaked within hours of the device getting into the hands of users. The Foxtel Go app, should be no different in this respect.
This is good news for Foxtel subscribers with Android devices. We’ll be sure to remind you when it’s available.
