Foxtel has announced a massive shake up to its service today with the announcement that they’re officially partnering with Netflix. This update will allow you to access your Netflix content right on your Foxtel box, which means the two services will combine all of your programs into one UI.
The entire Foxtel UI is getting upgraded too. This will happen starting today for IQ4 users and then filter down to IQ3 users in September.
A brand new remote is also being introduced which will put the Netflix button right there with your regular Foxtel buttons. It’s not clear how billing will work and if there will be a discount to access Netflix content, but it’s assumed that there will be a bundle of sorts.
