Foxtel Iq Timeshift/record

Recommended Posts

So Foxtel now supply the IQ box as the 'standard' box

$10 a month activates the timeshift and allows you to record.

Then, when you stop paying the $10 a month, they can remotely turn it off...

How do they do this? I'm surprised there hasn't been a hack found to activate the timeshift/recording features without paying $10 a month...

Good luck on a hack. Its controlled by the package components that fox turn on and off, same as the channels you can access, maybe if you could hack into foxtel and access your account and :lol::rolleyes::P .

Smart marketing though, get the interest going, put a remote in someones hands where theres buttons you can't use, have the tech who installs explain you have IQ but can't use it.......hmmmm.

Someone in Marketing deserves a reward.... very very clever

There is no hack possible.

The recording features are controlled just like channel packages.

Sorry to bring up an old topic.

What features do they turn off?

What ports are still functioning eg, rf out, USB, HDMI, etc.

Thanks
