Foxtel announces prices for Xbox 360 video on demand

Service to offer live streaming, video-on-demand and catch-up TV on Xbox Live

Foxtel and Microsoft have today announced more details of a new service that will provide Xbox 360 users with access to live and on-demand Foxtel TV via their consoles. The new service will be launched at the start of November.

The Foxtel on Xbox 360 service, which operates without a Foxtel set-top box, is accessed via Xbox Live and includes a package of live channels that are streamed through a user's Internet connection. The standard package, which includes channels such as FOX8, MTV, Nickelodeon, National Geographic Channel and CNN, is set to cost under $20 a month. The service is only available for Xbox Live Gold membership subscribers in Foxtel-serviced areas. Additional packages covering entertainment, sports and movies are also available for an extra $10 a month each.

Foxtel's CEO, Kim Williams, said that the company “is moving beyond the set-top-box and we are delighted to be joining forces with Microsoft on the Xbox platform to allow a new generation of customers — who traditionally may not have been able to get Foxtel.”

A Foxtel video-on-demand service will also be made available on Xbox 360 in November, allowing users to rent new release movies, archived movies and TV series. New releases will cost $5.95 each to rent, while library movies and TV Series episodes will cost $3.95 and $2.95 respectively.

Subscribers to the Foxtel live TV service can also access a selection of catch-up TV programming at no extra cost.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
