If you like the idea of Foxtel on Xbox but don’t own an Xbox, you might want to consider upgrading your TV. Samsung and Foxtel have just announced that the internet streaming version of the pay TV service is available on certain Samsung Smart TVs.
With pricing starting at $20 a month, and a total of 30 Foxtel channels on offer, the service is a clear point of difference for Samsung this generation of television. And given that just like last year’s Rugby World Cup, thhere will be dedicated channels available for streaming the Olympic Games, it’s a good alternative for anyone not wanting to sign up to a 24 month Foxtel contract.
Samsung are offering a three month trial of the service for all its compatible TVs purchased between July 1 and September 2, which might just be enough for some people to seal the deal.
