Foxtel Download To Close

Recommended Posts

Just received this in the email

DOWNLOAD

WILL SOON CLOSE

Dear xxxx,

On 27 September 2012, the Foxtel Download service is being closed. After that date, you won’t be able to use this service or access any of the shows you’ve downloaded to your computer, once they expire. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Please be assured, your monthly Foxtel from Telstra subscription remains unchanged – you’ll continue to receive the same great content via your set-top unit, whether it be Sport, Movies, Kids and Family or more.

If you have any questions, feel free to call us 24/7 on 13 2200 or visit telstra.com.au/foxtelfaq

Best regards,

Peter Jamieson

Executive Director, Customer Service

does this mean you will lose "owned" content (like with itunes, if they closed)?

Que? If it's downloaded into itunes you won't lose it even if they close..

Got the email too. No great loss. On demand is much better and doesn't count against downloads where as this did.

It was a comparative question, ie if iTunes closed lots of people would lose content they owned.

Not really their music hasn't had DRM on it for ages. Even if they closed you'd still have a copy of everything on your computer.

I think we'll find there'll be some sort of replacement. Wasn't their an announcement about a new ipad app which would let you watch foxtel online or something? Hopefully there will be a service you can use on your computer + on tablets.
