FOXTEL part of our Entertainment and have average installs from 500000 to 1000000. Last Update May 11, 2016. Google play rating is 58.7417. Current verison is 1.9.1. Actual size 36.0 MB.
S4 Still unsupported Still won't work on my galaxy s4. Bloody useless. Will have to check out the competition. Netflix might be the go
Does not work How can I take money out of my bank account using the commbank app on my galaxy s5 (international model) but not be able to use the foxtel go app on the very same phone due to security reasons. What an absolute joke this is and you are only fastrauting more and more subscribers by the day.
This sucks Won't play on my Samsung tab 4 but it will play the ads and then say error :( I can only watch on my phone.. please fix.
LG G3 (D855) Some LG G3 owners say the app doesn't work for them... I am having NO problems watching programs on this device..?
Update has broken it Live tv not working with error lmh102.
C'mon universal support is basic LG GPad still doesn't work. Almost every other app works on any device. Only valid reasons for this are poor programming and/or archaic monopolistic company decisions.
Doesn't work on jailbroken devices I don't have an iPhone so I am not jailbroken. I do have su which is different and is no reason for the ap to not work. Epic fail
Galaxy Note 3 Device not supported? Why is Note 3 in the list in the e-mail you srnt me if it's not supported? And why were you looking for payment with this app? Said it was inc in Foxtel Account/package! And why you need access to my photos & such personal info? Do I need uninstall? Wont if I win the Tablet but bet that won't happen-just another suck in!
Terrible company. Terrible service Costs the earth. Bad layered product system where you are forced to buy things you do not want. Rude customer service staff. Between the AFL app at the netflix...I get everything I want for $23 a month without the hassle of this bully of a company. Your company wont last until you truly compete. The wave of competition is only just beginning. I can live without the F1... not a very good carrot.
Just because i flashed/jailbroke my phone, you are preventing me from watching it on my phone. Bad move foxtel.
Useless Why am I paying for this and foxtel won't work on a android. Maybe they could get with the times, not everything is apple. Tried months later. Still useless. Wish someone could fix it?
Samsung tablet 4 doesn't work This is complete crap, the app wont even open on my tablet. Verry much getting over foxtel with the cost associated with them and all the other and cheaper options out there why stay!
Not compatible with Nexus 6 Foxtel are REALLY slow to roll this out to new devices. When they charge $25 per month to have a box in a second room I'm not surprised they don't sorry Chromecast but they need to get with the times eventually!
The app always freezes, doesnt load. Or wont connect to the Internet. Have to always uninstall it and install it again for it to work. Put some more work into this app foxtel.
Nexus Player & Apple TV...? This App should be released for both Nexus Player and Apple TV and in-line with the coverage you have on most recent big brand smart TV's and XBox & PS consoles.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha A850y Does not start, it wasted data to give message to say this device is not supported 35MB downloaded for nothing. On galaxy alpha
Xperia Z3 support finally After months of waiting I can now. Watch on my z3.so far so good loads ok, video takes about 5 to 8 seconds to come to HD quality but after that no issues so far
Crashes immediately on watching anything If this isn't fixed in the next month I'm canceling my service and switching to Netflix
Happy now Fox! Finally it works with Samsung SM-T700 tablet, which I bought last November 2014!
WORKING AGAIN Not working since update using Samsunf tablet 10.1 why dont you trial your updates before you install very annoying.
So sick of it Doesnt play to my tv using anything. Even hdmi cable in my phone. Also i cant use content on demand. This is almost useless.
Garbage Takes so long to load anything. Range is crap. Expensive for what you get. Netflix much faster and a hell of alot cheaper
Unsupported So it let's me download it just so it can tell me my device is unsupported? Makes a lot of sense haha
Thank you foxtel for the new update I can actually use the app I pay a reasonable amount of money for monthly. :)
Device not supported! Can't get the app started on my Galaxy Tab S 8.4 even though it clearly states being able to support Galaxy Tab S! Did the programmers even trial it before releasing the app & stating that its compatible with "X,Y,Z" devices!?!
It works At first I thought it was not working on my tablet because it keeps playing an 30s ad and then it said error. But you have to make sure that your tablet's date and time are set correctly for it to work. Well for me it works well. I also understand why chromecast doesn't work on here. Thanks foxtel Go a.k.a fogo.
Poor effort To bad you can not rate 0 stars ... Galaxy tab s not compatible ..finally it is now but to late .. Hello Netflix....good bye foxtel
Doesn't work First app I've found that doesn't work with my phone, hopefully fixed during the free trial or will cancel..
Samsung tablet 12.1 Why won't it work on it? Tablet been out for almost a year and you muppets don't support it. Fix this!
Lack of android support? Might want to look into it folks. Your much cheaper competition have
I hate you Foxtel Won't support my Nvidia Shield. No excuses. More monopolistic behaviour. If you didn't have the Super Rugby I would cancel my subscription. P.S I am not British I just like their spelling.
Fails to work with Chromecast What's the point of this app and service when data costs make it too expensive to use on the train, and idiot Foxtel doesn't include Chromecast support? Strange that I can hook my ps3, ps4 and Xbox up to a TV - you make it so terribly complicated for consumers who want to do the right thing and pay.
Not good and very annoying to use. Does not play google chrome in any form. After scrolling through all the channels and then selecting a show to read about and then going back one stage, it takes you back to the very start and then you need to scroll through all the channels again to find where you left off.
Good on PC Does NOT work on Samsung Tab My main reason for subscribing was to watch on my Tab Pro - it does not work despite claims by Foxtel. App developers: Please advise.
Better Now working pretty well on my Nexus 5 with Android 5.1.
Doesn't Work Downloaded the app after the website said my Samsung Tab 4 7 was now working for this device. Ive got this tablet model SM-T231, but message says unsupported??
Come on Won't let me watch because it says my device is jail broken when its not even if it was I pay money for the service so it shouldn't matter
WTF? I was going to subscribe, using my Samsung Tab S - the one I am using to add this review - but after reading the comments here, I figured it would be a good idea to check if the app runs. Guess what? Need an internet connection. How the hell do you think I downloaded it? Typical... So I guess I will not be subscribing after all.
Nope it doesn't work on Samsung S 3 Now I know why is this app is so underated...
Still not working 2 weeks later and still not working on galaxy note 10.1. Your 'solution' to upgrade is pathetic if there is no upgrade for that device. Just roll back the version already
Unsupported device(s) New phones are not encouraged by foxtel. Stick to your old devices with old software (potentially insecure). Surely if the ban on unsupported devices was lifted better bug reporting data would come in from real life testers.
Crappy work Foxtel I work shifts so I miss some of the shows I follow. Therefore the watch on demand feature looked great. Too bad 99 percent of the time the stream fails to play. Though inexplicably the preceding ad always plays. Can't tell you how sick I am of a certain Scandinavian car company. There's amateurs out there creating good apps so I don't know what monkey Foxtel got. Just adding my voice to the chorus of bad reviews. BTW, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact with Android L. Assuming this even gets looked into...
Works on my $49 Alcatel Its funny that I have issues with this app on my ipad/Note 4 but can actually use it on a budget phone. I missed Wentworth final thanks to foxtel crappy app, fortunately I could find a torrent to pirate the final episode. I suppose it saves watching ads.
A little disappointing This app would be great if you could actually use it with chromecast. I understand there is a technicality with license however this technicality is seriously compromising foxtel's reputation to providing a useful service here. I'm really disappointed and i can see a lot of others are too. Considering the competition is getting away with this, it is incredibly obvious something needs to be done!
Crap app Foxtel go please! What a load of rubbish Foxtel Go is!!! I have tried it on PC. I have tried it on a SGS4. I have tried it on a SGS5. I have tried it with Jellybean. I have tried it with Lollipop. It always crashes... always hangs... always is poor... How sad for such a good concept to have absolutely no substance when it comes down to implementation. They have had heaps of time to fix... heaps of complaints, and have done absolutely nothing about it!!! What a great customer focused company Foxtel is!!
Not compatible. HTC one m8 should be compatible going by what it says on the device requirement for foxtel go. Please fix!!
Doesn't work on all devices Works on my new Galaxy S6 that I just purchased, but not on my Galaxy Note Pro that I have had for over a year. This application should work on ANY Android device. Netflix works on all of my devices. Presto works on all of my devices. The free to air apps work on all my devices. This is not a new issue; people have been complaining about this for some time. It would be great if Foxtel could get this working on all devices instead of the current select few.
No good Keeps saying I need an internet connection when I have 4G and even wifi connected. App keeps crashing and says there is difficulty loading the screen. Might be time to switch to Netflix for a fraction of the cost and an app that works
So far so good. Works perfectly fine on my HTC one m8. There's just that annoying car ad, but I think I can live with that.
Good app but have some errors Its really annoying when u want to watch the next episode and it keeps coming up with an error message "playback error" some days it works fine. Also when u start watching a show and then the remove it.
Galaxy Tab S It doesn't work on Galaxy Tab S despite what it says above. I contacted Foxtel but no reply. It is very frustrating and Foxtel's standard line about not being about to deal with Android fragmentation seems like nonsense when most other media companies in the world seem to be able to cope. At least make sure the devices you say work with the app, actually do. Honestly with the amount of money people pay for Foxtel you would think they could get this sorted. Very, very poor service.
f***ed up app unsupported for my samsung core prime nothing is wrong with my samsung core prime its the app no stars for foxtel go ???
Good app but limitations i would like to know why the foxtel go app doesn't allow you on a samsung s5 plug your phone into the tv via Hdmi. I love the app but I really like to use it when I go away. So if I want to watch the footy I watch it on my phone. But when I plug my phone into the tv in my hotel room via hdmi so I can enjoy it but this app doesn't allow me it gives an error message. I have plenty of other apps that allow me to do this like nba game time. Why does the app not like this?
Restricting freedom Will not work on jailbroken devices oh and on rooted devices either for you android users
Useless, just useless. SCAM ALERT Signed up so I could watch some sport, and after 45 minutes it still doesn't recognise my user name even though it has already charged my credit card and it was supposed to be a 1 month free trial. SCAM ALERT!!!!
Typical foxtel garbage Barely functional, slow, awkward, crashes my device occasionally. Terrible
Love and hate It was working beautifully but now all I get is a black screen I can hear my shows but no picture needs to be fix foxtel to get 5 stars
Shite My device isn't compatible would've helped if there was a note before I downloaded it. Far q foxtel
Saves me getting another TV This great for when you wanna watch a show but need to get takeout
RIP OFF! Pay enough for foxtel to at least watch on big tv without having a sattelite dish on my roof and a big bulky box. Streaming and using Chromecast would save them money!
Disable allshare app to use - samsung s5 Gives the above message when I open the app. Can't get it to work.
WIFI ISSUE My Nexus6p can watch foxtell mostly on 3G. On my wifi it doesn't work but on a friends wifi it does. Unsure why this is as my wifi will play other streaming and YouTube vids
Crap app Keeps giving error...strange since I got my samsung tablet with Foxtel promo but appnis useless...thumds down Foxtel
Finally!! Finally works on Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Well done Foxtel!!
Slow! After each app upgrade my streaming has got worse and worse on my Samsung. Not having the same issues with netflix or stan. Picture freezes but noise continues. Such a shame as when it was working it was a great add-on to my foxtel package.
Refuses to play Doesn't play anything. I don't even see a menu anymore. As soon as I load it up its just a black screen.
Obviously crap developers if they are device specific. Now I've installed the latest version and it's still crap. Reckons my phone is jail broken. Which it is not!
Useless Now says device is not connected to the internet. It is and all other apps work fine.
Love it always reliable on My phone Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (Android) thankyou FOXTEL for allowing Me to watch My Foxtel Play subscription on XBOX (360) on the go on My phone simply Awesome!!
Why no chromecast support? As the title says
Finally working in my samsung note pro 12.2 inch... been waiting forever!
Latest update slow What have you done? was lot better previous update now takes forever to load guide and channels
note 5 hi foxtel team, with my foxtel go app - i am unable to play any movies or series using the anytime feature. it plays for 5-10 seconds and then the screen just froze(with sound and the seconds still moving forward) it's been going on for at least 2 months. hoping you can fix it. thank you
Don't expect to use your Chromecast This app does not support Chromecast but worse than that it will not let you cast the screen of your phone to your Chromecast. The moment that you cast your screen the app gives a message about 'AllShare' (I'm not using All Share or even a Samsung device) crashes and then appears as a screenshot behind the apps on your home screen. Hopeless. The app also has a clunky UX that makes it difficult to find your favourite channels.
Device FINALLY supported! It finally works on my Samsung Tab S! Get this, mine isn't an Australian model either! Good work guys, you finally got it up and running even though it took a while & a lot of whinging!!!
Lg G2 I am grateful that guy guys have added the LG g2! 5 stars?
Still doesn't work Hey you, do you like watching Foxtel on the Go? Well, this app isn't for you! If you ever wanted to have an IQ3 box in your pocket, this is the app to install.
???? What the hell is going on. I go to watch my show and every time I click on a channel, it changes to a random channel on its own and doesn't even work. Pretty much useless right now. Fix it.
Stopped working since update Since the update its not accepting my user name on my galaxy tab A. Was working perfectly up until yesterday! Now unusable, fix pls foxtel!
No channel 111 I like having the app but one of my favorite channels is 111. Just curious as to why its not on the app.
Hisense Sero Pro 7 Not working Android 4.2 Device not compatible Tried Clearing Cache of playstore update 10 Dec All good now...thanks.
Note 4 compatibility Came back to check and it finally allows to remote record.
Hi Foxtel, Is a Telstra bought S6 supposed to work ? Says it's jailbroken, I understand it is not...
Its ok but foxtel are tight Works great on xbox 360 and One, laptop, phone etc buy I personally think its a bit tight you cant watch foxtel play on an android tv box...whats the diff if its a phone or a media player? It should work on all devices...i pay my bill no matter what so make it work on all android devices...if i wanted an actual foxtel box id get one but guess what? I dont...
Plus 7 whats the problem Both my phone and tablet run android 4.4.2. I was able to instal plus7 on my phone easily but can't instal it on my tablet. Keep getting msg that my device is incompatible. What gives?
Useless Does not work on both my ps3 nor my gs6 constantly locks my ps3 up or logs me out of foxtel plus the video quality is awful and my internet is ten times faster than the recommended speed for hq and simply won't work on gs6 for any longer than a few minutes so glad got 14 days free cause there is no way I'd pay 70 month when i get stan for 10 and most of streams in 720 on stan and full hd on netflix so don't waste your time plus the ads were worse than free tv
Another WOFTAM from Foxtel. So you can't use this with a 'jail broken' device.. As much as I totally disagree with this I will accept it. However my phone is not 'jail broken' or rooted for that matter, (verified with root checker) but alas this crap app still incorrectly says it is. Running android 5.1 lollipop.
Doesn't work Since update it doesn't work. Glad my contract is cancelling next week. Hello Netflix.
Wtf foxtel This is part of our subscription and it doesnt work so fix it!
Good to go We I am impressed with this app. Have use it at home and work but has limit of three accounts only. If you have a family of four or more your stuffed.
Thanks for the update! Excellent, this app now works on my overseas-model Galaxy Note 5 and I'm very happy. Now I just need to get my phone data allowance increased :)
Grr. Fix this foxtel So I downloaded foxtel on to my little tablet and then I logged in and I went to watch sanjay and Craig! I do have kids pack at home and it came up I don't cos there was a key there. So I went to watch something else and it said it was jailbroken (rooted) I bought I 2 weeks ago. I was gonna root it but I changed my mind. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!
Not working It changes to a news channel and doesn't stream....plz fix
Foxtel rocks. How about supporting other devices than Samsung such as my Huawei Ascend Mate 7. They fixed it within days. Foxtel rocks.
No good Can't play on Samsung s6 it use to but after update not working and i need a phone number connected .i use Internet for everything . Please fix .
Issues with Nexus 6P I have registered my Nexus 6P and when I try to log in, it keeps saying I am new user. It won't allow me to view live TV!!
Don't work on rooted devices I could play around with this and get it to work but it's more trouble than its worth so I'm gonna leave this crap app! BTW Foxtel is way over priced and has so many errors it's not worth the money... I will be deactivating my account!!! ?
Not Bad Changed my rating and comments completely, as it is running happily on my Tab S, the only hassle I have is that it runs about 35 to 40 seconds behind the TV. This is a real pain when my wife is watching on FOX, and I'm on here. She cheers, and I have to wait to find out what she was cheering about ? One other point, the reason for only 3 stars - no Chromecast! This needs fixing pronto.
FIX ANDROID WIFI ISSUE This app used to work on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S SM-T800 without any problems. For the last month or so Live TV will not load and Anytime shows the advert (which plays seamlessly) then wont go beyond the loading circle. I have uninstalled, reinstalled. Cleared cache and data. Called Foxtel tech support and had all router hardware checked. Still no joy FIX THIS APP!!!!!!!!!!
Would be amazing if it worked It definitely has potential if it were fixed. I had so many issues while watching most shows and watching movies is basically impossible. Its definitely the app and not my net because netflix works beautifully. But the foxtel app did work at times with shows, and when it did it was perfect... then the screen freezes. And again, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO WATCH MOVIES!! PLEASE FIXX!!!
No channel 111 I like having the app but one of my favorite channels is 111. Just curious as to why its not on the app.
Annoying What good is audio when you have no video to go with it. Video freezes. Seconds tick on by. Audio keeps going. Your devs need a lesson or two on modern technology. Get it right foxtel! Massive thumbs down.
Won't work Says turn off all share even though I don't have it installed
Doesnt work Potential is there if it recognised my wifi connection.
Refuses to play Doesn't play anything. I don't even see a menu anymore. As soon as I load it up its just a black screen.
Why is it stupid? It tells me I can't use the app on a jail broken device. I have an android tablet
Playback freezes Samsung 10" tablet. Freezes more and more frequently. Need to rewind playback or sleep tablet but then it restarts the whole video. Very annoying
No support for Nexus Player (Android TV).
Fix issue on android Keeps saying loading channel and then error pops up
Can't screen mirror... How rude! The app doesn't let you screen mirror with your smart tv. Seriously - WHY NOT??? Disappointed.
doesnt work the app crashes all the time and cant even play a full movie the same problem is on the iphone please fix
Disappointing This app could be so much better and give customers such a better experience, but poor design and customer research really shows. Small thing like why can I not set a reminder for show directly from app or be able to set sport team that I follow and have all those games available and also that fact that it is an effort to click on the search button. Overall this app had high potential to be a really good companion app or even an alternative app to compete with Netflix but instead its a mess
Sad attempt at joining the 21st century. Garbage app. Dont bother. This app had potential but poor design prevents some users from linking their foxtel account. Nice to see our monthly fees being put to good use. Pfffffft.
So much potential This app is, 80% of the time, useless! Freezing and loading issues make me want to throw phone at the wall...
Doesn't work with wifi Foxtel you really need to improve this app. I pay a lot of money for Foxtel, now all of a sudden, it doesn't work on my tablet. I cannot catch up on my shows, or watch live TV without it freezing constantly. Even if I'm sitting in my office on top of my modem.... Extremely disappointed! !
Used to work fine App on Samsung tablet used to work fine but now can't use live tv or catch up. App is now useless. App also not working on wifes iPad, again stopped working for no apparent reason.
Terrible app 0 thought went into designing this app. Seems like they rushed it because it was "too hard"
Hire some quality QA people LiveTV doesn't work at all on home wifi. Works on mobile Internet though. Have troubleshooted all the steps as mentioned on foxtel community website. Wasted 30 mins on this. Giving up now :(
Terrible quality - 3 times the price of Netflix HD for absolute rubbish?! Jilting picture really did it for me, can't watch it. Definitely not our internet as Netflix runs beautifully. You can see that the money you pay doesn't go towards the service at all...
Excellent This app is excellent, by far the best I have, live information anywhere, if you are having trouble may be Samsung, they are crap or may be your just a loser Unlike everybody else,?? This app rocks the picture is excellent off a tablet. I fitted a tab. To my motorbike dash, was watching live sport cruising around town. Everyone who complained about this app are brain dead it will not get any better, live TV anywhere. Even on a moto.
Sack the IT management I subscibe to multiple streaming services that are alot cheaper than foxplay. Recently subscribed to foxplay. My other services work beautifully and my internet connection is very good. However I have had constant problems with foxtel go. Works fine on the laptop , any other device I use has constant issues. Considering cheaper services run better with a MUCH better interface, the foxtel services are shockingly bad for the subscription fee. It's really annoying because I want the service!
Sick of having to restart playback on Anytime every 10 seconds. Playback freezes or audio keeps playing while video stops. Please fix. I pay good money for my subscription and I shouldn't have to put up with that!
Flawless on my Nexus 6p I never rate or review any app on Google play but I wanted to write a review for this particular app because as I read most of the reviews to this app are negative so I didn't installed it from past many days but today I thought of giving it a try just to check how bad it is, but I am completely surprised that this app is working flawless and I am enjoying live coverage of ICC t20.all I can say is don't go on reviews each app behaves differently on different phone.. I recommend that you give it a try...
Just doesnt stream smoothly enough Regular buffering even on 4g (speed test 121.2 Mbps down / 30.1 Mbps up) do you guys know what caching is? Simply bad value and quality. Dont waste your money on this subscription.
Give us something that works Aren't we paying you guys enough to be able to create an app that works fine. Fix it!! Crash after crash. But the ads work fine.
I agree with everyone this app is good in theory but unfortunately stops working all the time. If Foxtel get their act together and improve this app, I will download again. Currently, I wouldnt waste time on this app and consider using another. Possibly Netflix!!!
Garbage sloppy seconds app! This is what happens when you divide your attention across two apps for the sake of stealing even more money (Kill go and let foxtel users use play instead... Easy solution). And yes constant not connected ted to the internet issues despite every other app saying otherwise
Big issues need resolving Always issues with buffering and loading series. Mismatch between voice and screenplay. Takes over 90mins to watch a 45 min episode. Waste of time using this app. So disappointing. Better of using the competition who have worked through these basic and vital issues
Poor effort Could be better....loads very slowly and cant watch a show from beginning if u have missed the start....
Does not work with Wi-Fi. App only works with 4g on the phone and does not work on Wi-Fi. The problem seems to have existed for some time
Works fine on 5.0.2 on Galaxy_s2. "8.0 Tab" No crashes or force closing, not chewing my batt, been hassle free and on par with my iPhone 6S plus version, record and series link record, remiders all working as described. Can't fault it tbh.. update same as IOS app got with new UI would be fantastic devs, get updates rollin..
Audio but frozen screen Really annoying, the audio plays but the screen stays frozen, uninstalled, reinstalled, did everything under the sun. Still nothing, fix this please.
Hopeless Won't let me register with legitimate current details and not prepared to sit on the phone in a que to speak to someone in a foreign country that can't help me. ?
Not very user friendly Its hard to navigate. Doesn't appear to have all recent shows available. Pretty disappointing given the amount of money we pay for foxtel
Doesn't work Won't even open. Keeps telling me to turn allshare off. All possible connections are off and it still won't work.
wont work. says it wont work with external display. I don't have an external display. Going to cancel entire account now. Netflix wins again.
Seriously? Even my banking app works on a rooted phone. Geez, and you wonder why you're losing customers? Stan and Netflix works fine on my rooted phone btw! Surprise, surprise..neither does Presto. Also, its rooted, not jailbroken.
App crashes every few minutes, seems like a waste trying to watch. Netflix is far better than this
Tired to watch, after pl;aying an ad notification popped on screen that I cannot access Foxtel Go from a jailbroken device. I am using an android that has not been rooted or modified so this is in error. Paying subscription to see ads and no content.
New version is stable New version is stable. I use this app all time, even at work hehe
Needs Fix to be useable Video feed freezes every 10 seconds while audio continues. You have to exit and re-enter into the episode/movie, only to have it happen again in a few seconds. It's really not watchable like this, so I'm giving up, and will not be continuing my subscription unless this is fixed.
Total piece of junk. Bug ridden laggy pile of crap
CANT EVEN REGISTER It turns green for account number when entered, then turn green for card number but account number turns grey. Fill out rest of details and click register and it wont advance, claiming that account number AND card number are incorrect, delete 1 number and put it back and it turns green, do same to next number and it turns green but first number turns grey. Same thing all over again when try to click register. Getting sick of spending $100+ month for crap service. Get your house in order Foxtel. There is competition now!!!!!! Really sick of massivly inflated prices and crap service. App "claims" should only take a minute to setup.... BS. Should have remembered this is Foxtel.
You can't be serious Does the guy that created this app still have a job. If so sack him right now.
Unacceptable Spend big bucks on foxtel subscription and app is abisimal quality. Have had to delete then reinstall 3 times and have to relog in again multiple times. get your act together and respect your paying subscribers. Are you goung t9 do something about this dodgy app? Now i am locked out of foxtel cause i complained....
10-fold improvement New version is far superior to the last one. I can finally watch shows without it just crashing. Menu much cleaner. Just needs a little more personalisation, like Watch Lists and favourites (even a show rating system, find out what your users are enjoying). Wish you would introduce more direct video quality controls during playback (I.e. video quality setting, 480, 720, etc)
Doesnt work after update! No dont tell me to forget my wireless or de-register my device. Nothing works after the update. I have re-installed any number of times. Stupid app still says I need to be connected to the internet to use Foxtel. Fix your crummy app and stop annoying your paying customers.
Extending functionality It's welcomed added value. Works well and and streams fluidly with as little as 3-5MBps connection. Can get a bit choppy and require buffering at times and allow only 3 registered devices at a time, but overall works well and across multiple devices (2 simultaneously).
READ IF YOU CANT LOGIN Have discovered that if you have developer settings enabled then the app wigs out hard and doesn't really work. Have had to let my dev settings go for the sake of using the app when needed, but at least it's a fix. For a payed subscription service you'd think that the app would have some form of customer service but the monkeys at Foxtel Go HQ are utterly useless and only respond to feedback when they say there is an "outage". Hope this helps some people though. Rating = cooked/10.
Update/ downgrade I previously gave this app 5 stars but since the update when you pause a show the progress bar doesn't move so you can't chose where to pick up from and can't see how long it has been paused for.
Great app. I see lots of complaints here but can't understand it. Been using this app for a couple of years and have had no dramas with it. Wi-fi or 4g connections, on phone, laptop or iPad, previous versions or the latest - no dramas. In fact quite the opposite, I really like it. Love being able to watch live sport where ever I am. I can see that with the latest version they've tried to make it like the IQ3 box, and that's okay. I can still find what I want to find and watch what I want to watch with no trouble.
Again... Can't connect! Can't use it! Since last update it tells me that I don't have an internet connection even though my tablet is connected just fine! Very frustrating! I've followed online instructions to refresh wifi settings.. Uninstall and install the app and it still tells me I'm not connected. Both on wifi and 4G. I pay good money every month for this service, but I'm not getting what I pay for. Pretty fed up and seriously contemplating ditching Foxtel altogether.
Can't login Since update it just crashes when trying to login. Samsung S7. Will give more stars once foxtel fix it!
Wtf crap Why can't I create a foxtel I'd. Please fix it my kids are so upset. School holidays and thought we were doing the right thing. Fix it??. I bet we won't get a response....oh yes it will be the same crap. "We're sorry we have been experiencing problems in your area, send us an email detailing your problems ". Seriously going back to free to air and getting Netflix. Thanks for wrecking our bank account.
Feedback The video will constantly pause when watching game of thrones via the catch-up section. The video froze about 6 times during a 1 hour session yesterday. The only way I can resume watching is to close the app, reload the video and hope it plays smoothly again. Eveen if it does, the audio will play but the video is frozen on screen for about 30-45 seconds. My AC Wi-Fi router is connected at full strength. Broadband service is with Telstra watching on a Galaxy TabS2 9.7 WiFi model.
Spining circle of death Cannot even register on the app as all it does is spin in a circle and nothing else. Have uninstalled and reinstall numerous times. As well as adjust my dev settings. For such a large company i would have assumed silly things like this would have been fixed a looooonnnngggg time ago.
Keeps freezing This is honestly doing my head in!!!! Ive spend the last 1 hour and 10 min trying to watch 40 min of a show. The picture keeps freezing but the audio keeps going. Ive deleted my cache restarted my new tablet 3 times and ive turned the quality to low and have deleted the app and reinstalled it and the app is fully updated but it keeps freezing every 2 min!!! Please fix this. I have netflix too and that app works perfect. Havent had a single problem with them. Maybe learn a thing or 2 from netflix.
Login issue Unable to login using my Foxtel id and password (app keeps saying it has stopped then returns to content menu) so I cannot watch content and the app is just filler on my phone. Please fix. Samsung GS7
Too many freezes and hangs I constantly get picture freezes (with or without the sound playing on) that don't resume. I have to back out and start again so often it takes 90 mins to watch a 30 min show. Horrible frustrating experience. This happens on both a Windows 10 pc and a brand new Samsung Galaxy tablet. I've cleared caches, deleted and reinstalled app to no avail. It's driving me crazy and I hate it.
New upgrade sucks Ever since the app upgrade I've been unable to watch any show all the way through. Picture freezes whilst audio continues; or just stops altogether! Very frustrating!!
Yup that's bad 3 different devices. Can't sign in at all on wifi and if I try cellular then app just crashes. If you get this working, then you did something great in your previous life and are only now being rewarded for it.
TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! Been using this app for a few years with no hassles, then tonight I find out I can't log in as it keeps crashing. NOT HAPPY JAN They have 24 hours to fix this crap or I will be cancelling all of my subscriptions on Thursday. Guide still works, but not Go. Go figure...
After the update nothing works You people wonder why others chose to download things off the Internet? ? Ill give you some helpful advice have your app work amd maybe people wont do it. Ive been trying to watch game of tbrones for 3 hours and I'm 10 minutes in due to the app crashing every 3 or 4 seconds. Shitful lift your game!!
Terrible App Constantly buffering in poor quality even though internet speeds are great. Also seem to always get error af502 and unable to log in. Don't know how they can screw up a streaming app this bad considering Netflix and Stan who you pay a he'll of a lot less for have apps of higher quality than this.
Overpriced & archaic restrictions So, in the face of low priced successful competition, how do you respond and maintain or grow market share? You maintain your unpopular prohibition on casting to TVs. You actually increase your subscription price. You push more ads down your revenue generating subscribers throats. You bleat and complain about the competition like Netflix decimating your business model, yet you do nothing to adapt to the changing marketplace and the progression of technology. Adapt or die Foxtel. This is not complex.
What are we paying for exactly? Aren't you just a tiny bit embarrassed that an illegal streaming site can deliver a better service than your overpaid hacks? Despite the fact that I have internet connected, the app won't load because it says I'm not connected to the internet. What a joke. As soon as you lose the A-league rights I'm off this crap service.
Little disappointed :( Although the layout is great an easy to navigate and the viewing is good clear picture its the freezing that is frustrating and when it unfreezes and continues it will commence but it will be as if the movie or whatever your watching has been paused but you can hear the sound perfectly. I hope you can fix this because I love foxtelplay its a great and I'm happy to pay the monthly subscription I just hope this can be fixed soon
Worst worst worst Why can't you seem to have this app working. I pay for it there fore it should work. Keeps crashing and won't open on my galaxy tab 10.1 and it was working fine all month. Fix this . Still the worst app and foxtel such a bad company no customer support overpriced programs repeted daily and so many adds, why are we paying so much for this crap. 08/07/2015 update 2.9 star rating, Foxtel you have really lifted your game what a joke. 18/5/16
Pathetic Sitting overseas in a private VPN to Oz and you guessed it, the only Oz TV streaming app that is so slow it's unusable. ABC and SBS all work perfectly. Foxtel has continually thumbed their nose at Android users and I'm hoping you go down and get what you deserve. Why is there no chrome casting? What are you afraid of Foxtel? I might stream a show to a television God forbid that I actually own an Android device that you don't block anyway. Pathetic.
Errors technical errors log in errors So i have to remove app to replace app to have it freeze to have it not play. Latest error is AF502.. technical error before was log in error before that was the freeze like srsly... i used to love this app.. now.. not happy jan
Dog'in I think ive had one day. were i could watch 2 or 3 episodes of a show. With out the picture frezzing and the show still running on sound. foxtel this is pathetic. Get your s**t together
Seek&destroy Crap app worked so much better without this crap app doesn't load anymore bloody Netflix is heaps better.
Not happy This is so disappointing I upgraded my Foxtel subscription and I use this app to view the shows I haven't been able to view anything with this new app. Not happy I am getting nothing for my subscription! Total rip off.
absolutely terrible and frustrating app that does not work, keeps going round in circles not able tom watch any programs at all, started a 2 week free trial firstly that didn't work, then paid $60 dollars off a credit card and still didn't work. phoned Foxtel and an Indian lady I could barely understand could not sort out the problem for me.. Wasted around 5 hours of my time.
It was working fine as it was I'm really annoyed that the app forced me to update - ever since I have the picture freezes and I have to go out of it and then back in numerous times just to watch a show its tedious and frustrating. I can hear sound but the picture is frozen. Or the whole app just crashes. Seriously annoyed at this point. I can't watch thd service I'm paying for!!! You need to fix it
I love this app I've been using for a long time now so I don't to be locked out out & can't say What is af502? Unable to login in with 3 different foxtel account, error every time. app sucks, I'm cooked too Ky
Update is unusable New app crashes constantly and logs me out several times a day. I want to revert back to the previous version but see no way of doing so (update was forced on me). My expensive subscription is solely for mobile use and I'll have no choice but to cancel it if the service does not improve.
Hero to zero Once an awesome app which has now all but been destroyed. You can't log in and/or hold a connection to the internet. Since the last update i haven't been able to use it. Rediculous considering we are paying customers...
Thought I'd give it a try Well I must say I was a bit dubious about updating to the newer version of this app after reading the reviews but I updated anyway ... how stupid of me !! This app is appalling. It keeps feezing mid program, its always dropping out either entirely or enough so I have to restart the process again , it dosnt let you look at whats coming up next on the guide like the old version did, its confusing to work out .... im with everyone else .. this is crap !!!!
Bradley What i find amazing is that all the ads come through perfect no freezing EVER!! But as soon as the program starts the picture freezes while the sound continues this is unacceptable for a app that we pay for
Update Since the last update, for some reason I can't log in to my account to watch anything. I've tried over a dozen times. Please fix!
All I want to do is watch game of thrones but I can't because this app keeps crashing good one
Freezes constantly Have to agree with 80% of the reviews on here. I used to be able to watch live and anytime without any real issue but now cannot watch anything, constantly either freezes video and sound continues, I get a black screen and sound continues or the whole thing freezes. I don't have any trouble with any other streaming apps only this one. I'm not game to sign up for Foxtel TV in case it suddenly stops working too. Will cancel and uninstall once I finally get through GoT.
Foxtel play I pay 35 a mth and dont receive all the good channels like discovery science. The newest doco shows. And im yet to find out if its the same for entertainment, but if it is ill be outa here. I like this app tho so far no problems. Would be good to favorite live tv shows to get announcements.
Terrible This app was ok and 2 days ago it fell apart. Foxtel this is not acceptable. To make things worse your call centre told me I can't run Foxtel Go unless I have a set top box. Really! ! Please fix this so the money I'm paying you for Foxtel Play ensures I receive the service I paid for.
Absolutely brilliant.... If you love neverending repeats of The Simpsons and the nauseating crap of women pretending to be 'real' housewives. No chromecast support either because, you know, Foxtel hate their customers. Foxtel Go is just basically you paying alot of money to watch D grade TV on a tiny screen.
Foxtel are f***ing terrible You can't even get in to the app as it says you aren't connected to the internet. They advertise this stupid service on every channel they own as if it is some godsend of a feature and they still can't even design a proper app. Waste of time.
This is really bad. Giving it one star becuase i can not give it 0 crap app freezes all the time or crashes. keep forgetting my credentials so have to log on again and again. Tells me i dont have internet (obviously i do as im writing this review). No way to see whats coming up next. Go back to the old version it was so much better.
Updated Foxedtel app ( silly,silly boy!!!!) Now says I need to be connected to the Internet. Help desk says that my up speed is too low for an app that work fairly okay a few minutes before the update. Unhappy Platinum Customer now saddled with semi precious (cr) app.
Let down by Foxtel Anytime. The pre-show advertising on Anytime always plays perfectly, so it's not my device or network. The selected programs however always freeze the image/sound or freeze the image and the sound continues on. This makes Anytime absolutely useless.
WTF Wanted to watch the end of the Swans game on bed on my tablet. Forced to update Foxtel Go, which has been working fine, and now all I get is a swirlu circle trying to load video. You have got to be joking this is ridi ulous on this day and age. Pathetic.....
Absolutely bloody terrible Why is it that now after the update, I can only access foxtel go via the app store? Everytime I open the app it says I need to update then directs me to the app store???? What a lot of rubbish. Why touch it??? It wasn't broken??? Didn't need fixing. And you didn't fix it anyway.... the completely ruined it.
Awful Error city. Can't login frequently error AF502. Also PS4 errors when on smartphone? Resolution is still awful. Lags and stutters and plenty of ads for customers who pay premium. How long can this continue Foxtel? Please enter the 21st century. Using Galaxy S7.
Extremely disappointing App continually freezes when trying to watch 'anytime' content. With the price of being a Foxtel subscriber it's unfortunate that they can't sort this issue out. Clearly I'm not the only one with the same problem.
Very frustrating Cant watch anything with out it crashing. Seems to work then pauses during, audio then seems to continue with the picture frozen. Have tried reinstalling app and restarting samsung tab2.
F#$*&d Says I have to update my android to ios8 or above.. stupid. Just closes everytime it opens. So can't watch squat.. BTW presto six big time too
It would be 5 stars but... I added new channel packs and they are still locked on foxtel go. The app says up to 4 hours and it's been a day or so and they're still locked. The channels themselves were working within a minute or two. Extremely disappointed with the app
The app doesn't work When i log in i can never watch. I go to live tv and it never loads. Go to watch an show/movie and i watch the same add twice and then it kicks me out. Fix it now as i had no issues before the update
Having trouble logging in Have had this app in my samsung tablet for a couple years now and all of a sudden it wont let me sign in. I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice and still nothing. Once i can sign in ill rate 5 starrs. Not even sure why it logged me out in the first place?. Still works fine on my sony xperia ...
Can't scroll! I wonder if the programmers ever actually use it you can't forward or back in a show without a miracle either the bar dissapears or it just doesnt work. Hate it.
why oh why? the update is a POS. can't watch any live shows without jumping through flaming hoops, i.e., close app, reopen app repeatedly till I randomly hit the jackpot. hate that the opening screen is shows that are "trending." just give me the option to choose what I want to see first. also, why does it always automatically play sky news channel when I go to live tv? fix it all.
WTF HAVE YOU DONE? Changed my rating and comments completely. WHERE IS THE GUIDE? One of the few things for which the app was useful was to check the guide and have the box record what we wanted. Now you have screwed that up too. I don't see you ever replying to comments on here, just goes to further demonstrate your lack of attention to your PAYING customers.
Getting worse This app is woeful. Abc iview is soooo much better. GO constantly freezes, logs out and errors. Not earth the aggravation let alone the money.
Foxtel suck balls Apparently foxtel make it so you can't stream to tv, MY FOXTEL BOX DOESN'T WORK AND YOU LIED ABOUT DELIVERING THE NEW ONE! How in the world is this acceptable? You can kiss my money goodbye, you shithawks, go F##K yourselves!
Shows keep freezing I loved this app until recently now everything I try to watch freezes and then after a min or so only the audio returns but not the picture. So annoying! Please fix. I'm using a Samsung note 5
Not happy since forced app upgrade Was using foxtel go and was very happy this app upgrade is rubbish screen freezing all the time very frustrating. Also when selecting eps from a series it keeps jumping out. Also hate the resume only on part watch progs would like a restart option. Come on Foxtel from something you had that was good to something that is so poor. Reminds me of the new taste coke debacle
