Expensive, 20 sec Ads, missing episodes

published

I signed up wanting to watch Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens but only realised there's 4 episodes out of 9 from season 1 - streaming rights issue.
After watching two episodes, there was a 20 sec ad. what the hell, paid subscription shouldn't even have ads. Disappointed with this service.

Foxtel now crap streaming

published

Foxtel have the most pathetic streaming quality.
They lie constantly about the reasons, if it's an over busy internet at the moment why can I stream a 4k movie on my Xbox one x from Microsoft perfectly.
Stop the crap Foxtel and give us what we pay you for.

Easy to use, but not worth the price tag

published

We received a year of free Foxtel Now with a new phone purchase. During the free trial, we noticed Foxtel tends to buffer a lot compared to other streaming services (Netflix & Stan), that do not buffer at all! Once the free trail had finished, we decided to keep if for one more month, but even with the $25 price tag it just wasn't worth it. Unfortunately Foxtel has many, many, adds that run through the shows, as well as shows running at certain times that you can't watch again later. This paired with its limited library, just made it not worth it for us when other streaming services offer so much more for a fraction of the cost.

Simply Awful

published

Give yourself at least 5-10 minutes to fire these Foxtel Now boxes up. They are that bad. Buggy, slow, unreliable, freeze regularly etc. Etc I'm convinced Foxtel inflict these abominations on the public so that they will turn to paying extra for the full foxtel service. Avoid like Corona Virus!

Rip off hangs and crashes all the time

published

Basic package is $25 per month, plus various to get drama etc.
Beware you can't add on doco's without paying $104 per month for everything.
The product hangs and crashes a lot.
Back to the Spoke TV box for Netflix.
Phoned tech support and complained about price of docos however the outsourced overseas call centre are pathetic and obviously cheap for Their news Corp master's.
Selling the box on eBay soon

Beware of their automated credit card charge

published

I cancelled and got a confirmation email that it was successfully cancelled and still being charged for it every month for 3 months after the cancellation.
My advice is to call your credit card provider and tell them to block Foxtel.
The reason I cancelled because of the contstant buffering issues. Not worth your money.

The Foxtel Now box is buggy...

published

I've used 5 different media boxes and have had 3 different SMART TVs, this thing is in its own league in terms of 'buggy'.
When you turn it on, it's pot luck. It has trouble finding a network connection, has so many other quirks... Once it works, it does the job well. I just get frustrated with the box and its Android OS, it's a POS.
Foxtel shouldn't have been cheap and done like Telstra did, use a Roku. Bullet proof box / OS.

Overpriced, underperforming service riddled with ads and delivering repetitive content

published

Downgraded to Foxtel Now from Go... Don't do it!!!!!

published

Paying to watch adverts....WTH?!!!!! If you have Go, do NOT change to Now, you will regret it as we certainly do. Recommend disconnecting when you are eventually forced to change, as there is ALWAYS another option out there - you just have to spend precious time and effort to find and set it up.

A complete and utter rip off.

published

It's the most expensive streaming service with the smallest range of shows and movies AND it has ads!!
So not only are they charging YOU an arm and a leg, they're also making money off advertisers by forcing you to watch ads even though it's pay TV!

And what's even worse is the fact that their ads are glitchy, so often times the ad won't load, which prevents you from being able to watch the program you're trying to watch, because Foxtel insists you watch an ad before each episode, to pay for the show that you're already paying for.

Foxtel is one of the greediest companies out there.
I've cancelled my subscription and refuse to give them any more money.

Adds & programs

published

We first got foxtel 24 years ago , it was great very few adds and good programs . We did mind paying forthe privlege of vertially add free TV . Now ! The programs are less than average and repeat day after day and worse still , i count up to 11 adds one after the other during the few shows that i actually watch . Why do we pay for this when all of these advertisers are clearly paying foxtel to be able to play their adds ? It should theoreticly be cheaper than it was 24 years ago . Foxtel needs some competition and should be giving us what we pay for . The new programming has all but removed the 2 shows thatbbI actually did watch on a daily basis . Really anoyed and probablh time to cancel .

Foxtel now is a dinosaur! buffering all the time, even though i have fastest NBN

Worst app and customer service

published

Incredibly unstable app, keeps logging you out, videos freeze constantly, and chrome cast drops out depending on the day. Flagged to customer service which is of course offshore so can hardly understand but they then defer you to text as theres no local phone number and have to text your issue - responses sound like the person at the other end is just clicking automated responses. Its the worst customer service I have ever encountered - still have no chromecast and now the videos have stopped working. In an increasingly competitive market, they are the worst contenders!

How dare greedy Fox remove our rights to free to air HD channels, ie. 9HD . This should be illegal and everyone should be shouting this out and dropping Foxtel all over the place. We are not an unsophisticated society, where a hell bent desperate and greedy company try to charge for a channel they have no right to. I will be dropping Fox!

My complaint should be answered properly. Not by some smart people from Foxtel being totally unprofessional with that benign answer. There are many complaints needing solution or answers. Where are your suggestions to fix what I have pointed out clearly.
