The company announced today that its Foxtel Go app is available on selected Samsung Android tablets and smartphones, including the popular Galaxy S III, the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Note 10.1.

However, Samsung's current flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone is not supported. When questioned as to why one of the most popular smartphones on the market is not compatible, a Foxtel spokesperson said the company has not had enough time to develop the app for the handset just yet.

"Just like many customers, we only recently got our hands on the Galaxy S4."

"We are working as fast as we can to make Foxtel Go available on it, we’ll keep you posted.”

In addition to being available on selected Samsung Android tablets and smartphones. Foxtel Go is also available for PC and Mac computers.

Foxtel's executive director of product, Jim Rudder, said the company is pleased with the response to Foxtel Go, which was previously only available on iPhone and iPad devices.

"We’re really pleased with the response we’ve had since Foxtel Go launched late last year."

"Foxtel continues to add value for our subscribers and the increase in the number and type of devices consumers can use to access it goes a long way towards delivering on our promise to help even more customers enjoy Foxtel in the home or on the move.”

Foxtel has also increased the number of devices that can be registered to Foxtel Go from two to three.

The Foxtel Go app was first released as an iPad-only app in November 2012, before becoming available for the iPhone and iPod touch back in February.

It allows Foxtel home subscribers to stream up to 60 live television channels and watch catch-up TV content. It will also be available to Foxtel Play subscribers when that service launches in the coming months.

The app can also be used to remotely set recordings for Foxtel programming on any linked Foxtel iQ digital video recorder.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
