Goodbye D2 satellite – keep watching on Foxtel

By: Sharon Fitness for GOOD

With the decommissioning of the Optus D2 Satellite, some viewers may find themselves investigating other ways to keep watching their favourite programs on GOOD. Another option worth exploring is FOXTEL. The Foxtel Group is Australia’s leading, next-generation subscription television company with over 4 million subscribers, owned 65% by News Corp and 35% by Telstra.

GOOD as ACCTV and The Australian Christian Channel before it, has been available on Foxtel for many years. A Foxtel subscription will allow viewers to watch the traditional linear broadcast on GOOD channel 182, as well as take advantage of some catchup content through the Foxtel ON DEMAND library.

Foxtel offers one solution with all the entertainment you could want in one place. Enjoy sport, dramas, movies, lifestyle channels and more, including GOOD and Daystar, all within one interface. Even better, GOOD is part of the basic sign-up package, so no need for expensive add-ons.

With Foxtel On Demand, you can stream shows from your package, anytime you like on your TV or your device, at no extra cost. You can also download the free Foxtel GO app. And with new titles added every day you can be sure, there’s always something to watch.

A basic Foxtel plan costs $49 per month. There are additional set-up costs depending on where you’re located and the difficulty involved in getting Foxtel to your residence but the good news is they have options for rural and remote areas, including if people don’t have internet, or have limited internet access.

A Foxtel subscription will provide the same type of user experience that viewers are used to with a set-top box and remote control. A Foxtel subscription is one of the more expensive options to choose to stay connected to GOOD, but it is a comprehensive, premium service with the most variety and functionality.
