Foxtel Triple Play

Foxtel LogoWhat’s this?
A new contender to the market in providing an all in one bundle for your home? Foxtel, the heavyweight player in the entertainment-direct-to-your-home category for many years, has decided to step up their game and launch themselves into the ISP market in the face of competition from new players on the field streaming content such as Stan and Netflix. These Foxtel bundles, coined Foxtel Triple Play, offer a new way to get your home phone, broadband and Foxtel service in one convenient Foxtel internet bundle.

Who’s it for?
Working off the Telstra network, these Foxtel broadband bundles are sure to be popular with those that want all the services they use in one easy to understand package, or for those already on Foxtel who would like to switch to a cheaper alternative than a separate bill for their Foxtel service on top of their home ISP costs.

The bottom line – is it going to save me money?
This is exactly what it’s set up to do. I’ll run down the big players in the game at the moment and whip up a comparison for you. An iinet 100GB broadband and home phone bundle is running currently at $79.90/month, Optus is running a 50GB bundle for $70/month and Telstra has 100GB for $80/month. A regular Foxtel Entertainment subscription is $25 per month. If you add that on to your current home and broadband bill you might be surprised at how much money you are actually spending. For iinet that’s $104.90/month, Optus $95/month (with half as much data), and Telstra $105/month.

For an extra $70/month on top of your regular Foxtel subscription fee (that’s $95/month all up folks) the Foxtel Triple Play in a 100GB bundle simply makes sense.

So what plans do they offer?
Whatever your current Foxtel subscription is, be it one of the combos – current prices for the Entertainment ($25/month), Movies (Entertainment + Movies at $45/month), Sports (Entertainment + Sports at $50/month), The Big Pack (Entertainment, Sport, Movies, Drama, Docos, Kids and Premium Entertainment at $120/month) – or any of their add-ons to the basic Entertainment package, you are able to select any data allowance package that Foxtel provides. All plans provide unlimited standard local and national calls and their rates to mobiles are a 49c connection fee with 30c/min capped at $2 for the first 20 minutes.

The plans
50GB bundle   – existing customers $65/month extra on top of your Foxtel monthly spend
– new customers $90/month including the basic Entertainment package
100GB bundle  – existing customers $70/month extra on top of your Foxtel  monthly spend
– new customers $95/month including the basic Entertainment package
200GB bundle   – existing customers $80/month extra on top of your Foxtel monthly spend
– new customers $105/month including the basic Entertainment package
500GB bundle   – existing customers $100/month extra on top of your Foxtel monthly spend
– new customers $125/month including the basic Entertainment package

The beauty of these plans is that you can select either a 12 or 24 month contract for the same price per month. The only difference being is on a 12 month plan you have to front up a $110 Foxtel Hub WiFi modem fee, a $59 broadband activation fee and a $59 home phone connection fee, whereas on the 24 month plan the only fee is the $59 home phone connection fee.

The bundles are also available, strangely, as a complete service excluding the Foxtel component, but the rates are higher than as an add on.

If you currently have, or would like to get Foxtel in your home, these Foxtel Triple Play bundles may just be the perfect fit for your situation. For more information go to http://www.Foxtel.com.au/get/broadband-bundles.html or call them on 1300 130 799 to work out what’s best for you.
