MUMBAI: Australian pay TV service provider Foxtel has announced that Telstra BigPond broadband customers will not be charged for any data when using Foxtel on Xbox 360, and there will be six BigPond TV channels added to the service. This means that all video content will be unmetered for Telstra BigPond customers when viewing the Foxtel on Xbox 360 service, including watching TV shows from up to 30 world-leading FOXTEL channels on the live streaming television service, the six BigPond TV channels, Catch Up TV, and hundreds of new release films, library movies and TV episodes from the Foxtel on Xbox 360 On Demand service. The six channels from BigPond TV cover sport, racing and news including: Footy TV the AFL channel, League TV the NRL channel, V8 Supercars Australia, Racing TV with TVN, BigPond Sport TV, and BigPond News. These channels will be available on the FOXTEL on Xbox 360 service to all Get Started subscribers at no additional charge. This is the first time that Foxtel on Xbox 360 subscribers will have the benefit of both selected live coverage of sports via Fox Sports Play and ESPN, as well as streamed AFL and NRL games available on delay. In addition, from June games from the current season of AFL and NRL will be available on the service as Catch Up video on demand, and a highlights piece will also be available for each AFL and NRL game. Live AFL will come to FOXTEL on Xbox 360 from the start of the 2012 season. Foxtel executive director of product and sales Patrick Delany said, “This arrangement with Telstra is a big win for FOXTEL on Xbox 360 users, allowing unmetered access to thousands of hours of great programming – all without a Foxtel fixed term contract. There are around 1.3 million Xbox consoles in Australia and getting unmetered access to Foxtel on Xbox 360 is now as simple as plugging into BigPond internet to give subscription TV a go.”
