Australian pay-TV giant Foxtel has begun offering services on the country’s new fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP)-based National Broadband Network (nbn) in the current coverage area.

nbnlogoFoxtel says the nbn services will strengthen the company’s ability to deliver high quality, reliable streaming of its internet delivered services across iQ3, Foxtel Go, Foxtel’s on-demand programming and other popular video steaming, social media and gaming applications.

“With today’s launch on the nbn network, we’re taking our broadband service to the next level. When our customers couple Foxtel’s premium movies, TV shows and sport with our unlimited broadband bundles they will receive their content on broadband that is purpose built for entertainment,” said Andrew Lorken, executive director of broadband, Foxtel.

“We think this truly differentiates Foxtel from other broadband providers in an increasingly competitive market and we aim to be the broadband supplier of choice for those customers seeking a combination of the highest quality Internet access and the best content,” he added.

New customers can sign up to an unlimited broadband, home phone and TV bundle, with the Entertainment pack, from A$111 per month on a 24 month plan. Existing Foxtel TV subscribers can add an unlimited broadband bundle to a non-Platinum HD pack from $85 extra each month on a 24 month plan, or $75 extra per month on a 24 month plan when added to a Platinum HD pack.

Current and new customers on Foxtel ADSL broadband plans will be able to switch their service to an nbn from Foxtel service, without the need for a new contract, once the national broadband infrastructure roll out reaches their home.
