Update: Foxtel has advised that the update with full availability should be available to all users by this afternoon.
After 2 years in the wild with very limited availability, Foxtel has finally announced that their Foxtel Go service, which allows you to access Foxtel ‘where and when you want’, is now available to ANY device running Android 4.1 and above – all the way up to Marshmallow.
Previously restricted to only tested devices – unless you fiddled around a bit – the app was quite restrictive, with mainly Samsung devices supported, though Sony and LG devices were certainly added to the list in recent times. Allowing devices running Android 4.1 and above to access Foxtel Go is a good move, with the latest figures showing that this will allow 92.7% of people with an Android device to access the service.
Foxtel Go is available as part of a Foxtel subscription package, allowing access to up to 2,500 movies and TV shows across 78 channels – depending of course on your package – and that list is always growing. Subscribers can access Foxtel Go within 15 minutes of completing their sales order.
