Foxtel has announced more details for its new “transformative TV technology”, Hubbl.

Revealed at a launch in Sydney on Wednesday night, it was confirmed that the device will be available to purchase in Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi retail stores nationally and on its website, however an on-sale date is still yet to be announced.

Hubbl will be available to purchase for $99 and can be plugged into any compatible TV, while the Hubbl Glass – a TV with Hubbl and a built-in sound bar – will also be on offer starting from $1,595 (available in 55′ and 65′ as well as five different colours).

“Hubbl stands out from the pack by offering live TV without an aerial, seamless subscription management at the touch of a button , more discoverability and personalisation as well as allowing customers to stack up to five eligible streaming apps and save up to $15 per month on their subscriptions,” Hubbl managing director, Les Wigan, said.

Stan, Optus Sport and Paramount+ are the main three that will join the platform soon after launch.

“Hubbl is a unique product that simplifies the TV and streaming experience so you can spend less time searching for something to watch and more time enjoying the content you love,” Hubbl executive director, Dani Simpson, added.

“We’re proud to partner with leading retailers Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi to help us reach customers in-store right across the country in addition to having our own digital shopfront at Hubbl.com.au.”
