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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
