Foxtel has this week been contacting sports fans without a movies package to let them know they now have access to Foxtel’s full selection of movie channels and movies on demand until 30 June at no extra charge.
The details are:
Access to Foxtel’s 10 dedicated Movies channels – Movies Premiere, Movies Action, Movies Comedy, Movies Drama, Movies Romance, Movies Thriller, Movies Hits, Movies Greats, Movies Family and Movies Kids along with Movies Ultra HD.
Access also to Foxtel’s thousands of hours of movies on demand drawn from Foxtel’s movies catalogue of over 1,000 movies.
Foxtel also reminded those sports fans the sports channels are still being curated while major sports codes are on pause with a refreshed sports line up including archive specials, new documentaries, pop-up channels and live shows.
Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany told subscribers:
“We know nothing replaces live sport but we believe the combination of sports archive specials, new documentaries, pop-up channels and live shows together with access to all our movies is a real alternative.
“As Sport subscribers stay safe and settle in at home, we want to make sure they all get to experience the amazing depth and breadth of our movie offering.”
Foxtel’s continuing sport programming includes:
Live shows including Fox Footy Live, Fox League Live, The Late Show with Matty Johns plus new episodes of Bounce and The Fan.
The dedicated football channels are also hosting re-calls of some of the greatest AFL and NRL matches from the past across the weekend with live commentary.
