Foxtel has launched FoxFlicks – a streaming VOD (video on demand) movie service available at no extra cost to Foxtel Movies subscribers that delivers Australian audiences a curated unrivalled movie experience.
Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany promised a raft of initiatives across the next few months and the FoxFlicks announcement follows just two weeks after the Foxtel 4K initiative.
There is no way for movie fans to access FoxFlicks without taking a Foxtel subscription. At the moment that minimum financial commitment for new subscribers is $46 a month for an annual spend of $539, which offers three months free and a 4K iQ4 box which costs $125. That gives a subscriber access to 10 movie channels, 45 entertainment channels and FoxFlicks.
Over 1,000 of Foxtel’s premium on demand titles from all six major Hollywood studios are available to stream via the FoxFlicks menu on iQ3 and iQ4 boxes. The service offers movie posters, trailers, recommendations and an easy navigation experience.
Patrick Delany said, “A new movie every day of the year, and over 1,000 movies to stream on demand at any time for our customers – this is Foxtel like never before. We are revolutionising how we present movies and giving Foxtel viewers an easy, simple way to stream a huge lineup of movies when they want, and how they want, all part of the Movies package.
“FoxFlicks is the most advanced movie destination in Australia and is part of Foxtel’s ongoing commitment and vision as Australia’s premium content streaming destination. This service enhances the way we deliver our expertly curated movie selection. The depth of programming, combined with our first-run deals with the major studios, ensures FoxFlicks delivers our viewers unrivalled premium movies in a personalised and customised way.”
Subscribers will receive FoxFlicks in addition to the 10 linear Foxtel Movies channels that deliver content 24 hours a day across Premiere, Action, Comedy, Romance, Disney, Family, Masterpiece, Greats and Thriller, plus pop-up movie channels and a catalogue of titles available to search and watch instantly via set-top boxes and devices.
