Foxtel have put out an update today which announces the additon of a number of devices to their compatibility list. What hass caught the attention of users more than the fact more devices have come out is that the list is not dominated by Samsung devices.
The list posted on the Foxtel Community Page includes the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge, Samsung Tab S, Samsung Tab 4, Sony Xperia C3, Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet, HTC One (M8) and the Nexus 9.
It was only a matter of days ago I asked this exact question to Foxtel who responded with:
Hey @Foxtel when will you make Foxtel Go available to more devices? I can't install on my Z3 Compact or my Nexus 9 – both mainstream devcies

Interesting to see though, that Foxtel have also opened up access to the app to a number of unsupported devices just to ‘see if they work’, included in this list are:
|Asus EEE Pad Transformer||Huawei Ascend P6||Samsung Galaxy Mega|
|Asus Memo Pad HD 7r||Huawei Ascend P7||Samsung Galaxy Nexus|
|Google Nexus 10||LG G3||Samsung Galaxy Nexus|
|Google Nexus 4||LG L2||Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7|
|Google Nexus 7||Motorola Droid 4||Sony Xperia C3|
|Google Nexus 7 v2||Motorola Droid RAZR HD||Sony Xperia Z3|
|Google Nexus 9||Motorola Moto G||Sony Xperia Z3 Compact|
|HTC One||Samsung Galaxy Ace 2||Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet|
|HTC One S||Samsung Galaxy Ace 3|
|HTC One X||Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo|
There is a note from Foxtel on the post on a couple of notable exceptions:
- Jailbroken and rooted devices are not supported
- International variants of existing supported devices have not been added. However if you’d like to request a specific device tell us the model number you’d like enabled and we will investigate.
It is wonderful to see more devices getting added to their compatible list of devices for Foxtel Go, now if only they could keep up and have all mainstream Android devices in the list there would be a lot more happy users of the Foxtel Go offerings.
