Foxtel’s On Demand catch-up service has been around for a while, but yesterday the Pay TV provider decided to send out some extra info on it, which is probably worth refreshing for those who rarely use it.
Australia’s largest catch up television service accesses hundreds of hours of programming to watch instantly.
The service is available to Foxtel customers who connect their internet-enabled Foxtel iQ or iQHD set-top-box to the internet.
Programs are free with your channel package.
Over 50 channels provide content each week including the latest episodes of Vampire Diaries, Hart Of Dixie, Swamp People, The Walking Dead, Sons Of Anarchy. Project Runway Allstars, The Fades, and coming soon are True Blood, Falling Skies, America’s Next Top Model, and Upstairs Downstairs.
Brendon Moo, General Manager of Foxtel On Demand said, “Foxtel provides its customers with the best entertainment experience possible, and now we’re providing even greater value for their subscription with the introduction of our multi-channel catch up service.
Catch up TV shows and movies will generally be available to download to a subscriber’s planner from midnight on the day of broadcast. Once in the planner, the program can be watched as many times as you like within a 28-day period. Once downloaded into the planner the “i” button will provide information on when a show will be deleted. Just press ‘On Demand’ on the remote and then select ‘By Channel’ to search, or alternatively browse any of the menus within On Demand.
