How to bundle your broadband with your Foxtel


WhistleOut
02 May 2017

Got broadband? Got (or want) Foxtel? Want them on the same bill? Makes sense. There's three providers in Australia bundling internet access with Foxtel, and you can even save a bit of money by getting both services through the same source. Here are your options:

Telstra

Telstra includes a basic Foxtel subscription with its high-end broadband packages, starting at $120 per month. The subscriptions also includes three months of free access to your choice of Sports HD or the Foxtel Drama and Movies package. After the three months are over, you'll have to pay extra for those premium channels.

The bundles also include phone calls, a huge amount of data, and a bonus Telstra TV set-top box. You do however have to sign a 24-month contract to get Foxtel included with your Telstra broadband.

Foxtel

Foxtel actually sells broadband too, with Foxtel and broadband bundles currently starting at $91 per month (thanks to a $10 per month discount). Unlike Telstra, Foxtel has unlimited data packages, and you'll only need to sign a 12-month contract, rather than 24. If you're after every Foxtel channel, its Platinum plan effectively cuts the cost the of unlimited broadband to $75 per month, but you are looking at $202 per month for the total package.

Optus

While Optus might not be the first name you think of when it comes to Foxtel, it will let you bundle a Foxtel package on top of an Optus broadband, mobile, or home phone service. In some cases, you'll even be able to save a bit of money by getting your Foxtel from Optus. The basic channel set is billed at $25 per month, rather than $26, Sport is $25 rather than $29, and the Platinum HD package is $132 rather than $137.

There are however a few catches: "Optus TV featuring Foxtel" is only available in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, you'll get an iQ2 set-top box rather than iQ3, and you won't be able to use features such as Remote Record and Foxtel Download.
