Microsoft just announced full details for the upcoming feature that will hit the Xbox 360 next month, FOXTEL. Package details and pricing of this exciting feature are fully detailed.
WTF? Your point?
Oh so you live in Ausralia? You get Foxtel where ever you live? He was merely stating a point to those that may not know about it.
Read the article. It states those points fairly clearly. While we're on the topic, Dammit, finally a service on Xbox I might actually use andits Foxtel only. Why no Austar? And why the bloody hell do we need to have Xbox Live to use this. Thats just a ripoff. here no technical reason for it oter than M$ thinks this will rope in a few more customers. I have to pay for my phone line, then pay for my internet, then pay for XBL which I dont want,and then Foxtel? Its a good deal for those that have or want XBL, damn annoying for me.
@Bathyj Oh, you think people actually read around here? It is more like read the title and my crap up lol.
Yeah, kind of makes up for all the stuff Americans get on live. At least this way we can watch ESPN through our 360's, but not in the cool way the Americans do. It's a pretty good feature for Microsoft to bring to us Aussies. Let's hope it works well.
I honestly do not see the appeal. I trust my foxtel box way more than I trust my 360 (it's one of the pre-RROD models) and it is a loud XBOX as well. The foxtel box is sturdy and simple to use.
Oh no! Xbox 360 has been infected with FOXTEL! Oh no! Someone alert Solid Snake and the La Li Lu Le Lo and sometimes Ly! Don Mattrick wants Metal Gear to take over the GW AI and rewrite nanobot code to make us all love Kinect! IT'S THE GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS! The Patriots didn't want money or warheads or war secrets, they wanted us to love Kinect! And Liquid Mattrick is gonna fulfill the Patriots' legacy! LIQUID! Sorry, I'm bored. Yeah I guess this is great for the Aussie gamers. Have fun with FOXDIE!
"and sometimes Ly!" I cracked up there. XD
Fox in the belly of the beast - Rupert Murdoch's home country. I pray for you.
Foxtel is very steady. Any issues will most likely be 360 related.
I should also add the other issue is internet usage. We do not have unlimited usage.
its a great deal, provided that some ISPs get on board with it being unmetered. if my ISP does that, and the NRL is included in the Sports package - although by the sounds of it it wont be :( - ill sign up. gaden_malak: "I honestly do not see the appeal. " the appeal is foxtel, cheaper than usual by about $10 a month, and with no extra hardware necessary. whats NOT to like about that if you own a 360 and were considering Foxtel? i see no way you can doubt the appeal of it. iinet already has unmetered Xbox Live content, so itll be interesting to see if this is unmetered. they released launched their own IPTV service though, so that might throw a spanner in the works.
This sounds quite good I live in the UK and have Sky on my xbox as it works out cheaper for me to do it through my 360 than through a sky box. Im glad MS are going the services like this it is helping IP tv take off. I wish they would also bring out a TV tuner like PlayTV too as this would be another good add on for the 360. I have PlayTV too and it works really well esp when im away with work and I take my PSP and can connect my PSP to the PS3 and watch programs I have Recorded.
Good luck watching it with a 50gb cap!
I need more cartoon channels if I was to give up my satellite subscription. Also, spike tv and DVR.
