Foxtel brings back Foxtel Go app

Foxtel has relaunched its mobile streaming app for subscribers, Foxtel Go.

The application, which was renamed as The Foxtel app last year, has returned to its original name, Foxtel Go, and now has HD streaming and support for Chromecast and AirPlay.

The Foxtel App has been renamed Foxtel Go

Foxtel Go initially launched in November 2012, allowing subscribers to its cable and satellite services to watch shows on iPads.

The new application has features including personal WatchLists, closed captioning and ‘continue watching’. The newly revamped app is part of Foxtel’s attempt to deliver greater value to its subscriptions. It comes a month after the subscription service announced the launch of a 4K channel.

Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany said the company was striving to “improve” the way customers enjoy entertainment.

“We got things started with our newly secured cricket rights that are set to bowl customers over with no ad-breaks during live play starting this November, and our recently announced 4K channel will bring the sights of sport, movies and docos to you like you’ve never seen this coming October,” Delany said.

“Today, we’re bringing a familiar name back to our mobile app, Foxtel Go, and giving it a high-def makeover while adding the ability for our multiroom customers to share it with big screens when you’re away from home.

“These changes are just the beginning as we continue to make the way customers experience Foxtel better than ever before.”
