Earlier this year, we reported that Foxtel had gone into partnership with Samsung to bring its mobile Foxtel Go app to limited Samsung devices and today, Foxtel have announced that Foxtel Go app will be available to more Samsung devices and will be able to be downloaded from the Play Store directly.
The Samsung devices which now support Foxtel Go officially are:
- Samsung Galaxy S3
- Galaxy Note 2
- Galaxy Note 10.1
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy Note3
- Samsung Galaxy Tab2 10.1
- Samsung Galaxy Tab3 7”
- Samsung Galaxy Tab3 8”
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8”
Now while it is disappointing that the app still seems to be only available directly to limited Samsung devices, the app now being available on the Play Store is curious move and could be seen as setting the stage for more devices — possibly other than Samsung devices — in the new year. Maybe.
Of course there is always the unofficial route to download the APK for the app which you can find out more about here.
Is your device one of the listed above? have you downloaded either the official or unofficial Foxtel Go app? What do you like about the app? We would love to hear your thoughts below.
