FOXTEL confirms plans to shutdown NOW and KIDS mobile app platforms

Foxtel Go

Foxtel has confirmed plans to consolidate its streaming product options by shutting down two mobile apps and migrating all customers to Foxtel Go

From today, the Foxtel Now and Foxtel Kids apps will be removed from the Apple and Google app stores, with mobile customers directed to download an updated version of Foxtel Go.

For customers using Chrome or Safari browsers on their PC or laptop, Foxtel can be watched at watch.foxtel.com.au.

The updated version of the Foxtel Go app will feature a dedicated kids’ homepage, including Parental Control options ahead of the retirement of the Foxtel Kids app in January.

Customers can register Foxtel Go on multiple devices and watch it on two screens at the same time, meaning more access to Foxtel for every corner of the household.

Foxtel Chief Product and Strategy Officer Alice Mascia said:

“We have been investing in the Foxtel GO app to provide all our customers with the best of TV and on-demand on their mobile device.

“By focussing on one app, we will also add more value for Foxtel Now customers by providing access to popular features and support from Foxtel GO that were previously unavailable on the Foxtel Now app.

“These features include a preview screen to watch show trailers, an expanded Kids homepage and support for Android 10 and iOS 13, providing them with an even better mobile experience.”
