Foxtel to stream over Xbox LIVE

The pay TV company has teamed up with Microsoft to bring its pay TV service to the Xbox 360

Foxtel will deliver its pay TV services through Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE platform by the end of the year.

Foxtel via Xbox LIVE will allow users to access to a number of pay TV channels including FOX Sports, Discovery and MTV. Video-on-demand covering television series and movies will also be available.

Only users with a Gold Xbox LIVE membership and a Foxtel by Xbox LIVE subscription can use the service. A one-year Xbox LIVE Gold membership costs $US79.95. Pricing for the specific Foxtel services has yet to be announced.

Microsoft already has agreements with pay TV players, BSkyB, in the UK and CANAL+ in France.

“We will offer Foxtel by Xbox LIVE with various packages and prices and under flexible agreements,” Foxtel chief, Kim Williams, said in a statement.

Microsoft head of entertainment and devices, David McLean, said the vendor was now approaching one million Xbox 360s sold in Australia.
