Foxtel adds catch up movie channels to Foxtel Go – but says not a reaction to subscriber backlash

foxtel goFoxtel has rolled out catch up movie channels on its Foxtel Go iPad app.

But the pay TV broadcaster has denied it was a reaction to weeks of customer anger after cutting its movie suite from 15 to 11 channels on January 1.

A spokeswoman said it was always planned following the launch of Foxtel Go.

The movies will not be live as other channels are on the app, which will allow people to watch when they want to ie, On Demand.

Foxtel’s executive director of product, Jim Rudder said: “We promised more content and from today all Foxtel Go customers with the Movies subscription package will see the new On Demand movies available in their Foxtel Go app. The movies will be automatically added in the Catch Up section.

“Foxtel Go will also be available next month on iPhone and iPod Touch and soon after that on PC, Mac and Android.”
