Foxtel who are under pressure in the content market has now moved to flogging broadband solutions as part of their bundle offering. The offer is nowhere as good as the $90 unlimited broadband package from Optus.

The new offering Foxtel starts at 50GB of data, home phone and Foxtel for $90 but you do need to buy a minimum 12 month contract. 100GB of data plus phone and Foxtel costs $95, 200GB of data, home phone and Foxtel goes for $105 and 500GB of data, home phone and Foxtel costs at $125 on a 12- or 24-month contract. 

The service is already being labelled a “bad deal” by some media organisations. 

Existing customers will be able to get the 50GB for an extra $65 per month on a new 12- to 24-month contract.

The new Foxtel Broadband are based on ADSL with the service delivered over phone lines, Foxtel customers who already have cable would notice a reduction in speeds for the worse. 

Foxtel claims that in the future they will offer National Broadband Network (NBN) plans later this year.

Right now Foxtel is facing greater competition, increasing the pressure to penetrate Australian households, which has been stuck below 30 per cent.

The move comes as international SVoD player Netflix plans to launch in Australia in March 2015.

In 2014, Foxtel slashed the price of several offerings in anticipation of greater competition. It cut the price of a basic cable TV package by 50 per cent to $25 per month however services are limited and users do not get premium sport or movies for this price.
