Foxtel’s big TV play, Hubbl, will be on sale shortly through Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi, as well as through

Foxtel announced on Friday that the device will be available to purchase from March 10.

Hubbl is available as either a small puck-like device that plugs into a smart TV, or as the Hubbl Glass – a 4K Ultra HD Quantum Dot Display 8.2 million pixels television set.

Patrick Delany, CEO of Foxtel says Hubbl will “effortlessly fuse free and paid entertainment and sport from Australia’s favourite apps, channels, live TV and the internet into one seamless user experience”.

“Hubbl is only as good as the breadth and depth of apps integrated onto the platform to ensure a truly converged streaming experience and in removing frustration when it comes to the choice of what to watch,” he said.

“It’s a huge testament to the transformative Hubbl technology that these world-class and much loved local partners have chosen to reshape the streaming experience with us. The future of TV and streaming is here.”

Global giants Netflix, Disney+, Prime, Apple TV+ and Paramount+ will sit alongside Foxtel’s own BINGE, Kayo, and Flash, plus Nine’s Stan, Optus Sport, and all the free-to-air apps: ABC iView and ABC Kids, SBS On Demand, 7plus, 9Now, and 10 Play.

Foxtel will also launch LifeStyle, a new streaming service that brings its best lifestyle content under one roof.

Stan, Optus Sport and Paramount+ will join the Hubbl platform soon.

“With 18 global and local apps integrated into the experience, Hubbl will make streaming, searching between apps, watching and subscription management easy,” said Dani Simpson, executive director of Hubbl.

“We’re excited to get Australians Hubbl’n from 10 March with a simplified TV and streaming experience.”

Hubbl will also launch a national campaign on the same day featuring Hamish and Andy.

“With our nationwide advertising campaign launching on March 10, Hubbl will be unmissable,” Simpson said.

“We want all Australians to know that Hubbl is the solution to streaming fatigue and frustration.”
