Foxtel unveils TV like never before

Foxtel in Live 4K reinvents entertainment and sport
New iQ4 to deliver Australia’s only guaranteed Live 4K experience
Foxtel’s Cricket in 4K brought to life in brilliant detail from Nov. 4

Foxtel-4k-

Foxtel today announced the launch of a new, dedicated, 4K live channel, heralding the next wave of change in Australian television. The arrival of Foxtel’s 4K channel is an Australian first, bringing with it a live 4K experience and an unprecedented way to enjoy sport, documentaries, movies and more through Australia’s only guaranteed 4K satellite signal.

Foxtel in 4K will launch in October on channel 444 and will come as part of a Foxtel Platinum HD or Foxtel Sports HD subscription for customers with an iQ4. At launch, the channel will start previewing 4K content – including live sport, documentaries, concerts and more, and over the next 12 months, Foxtel will continue to expand the selection of unique 4K content to its subscribers.

The news comes as Foxtel announces the arrival of the new iQ4 set top box. The iQ4 is Foxtel’s most advanced streaming set top and is designed to be continually upgraded with newer, smarter features that make finding and streaming your favourite Foxtel programming easier, while delivering the best in live television via Foxtel’s satellite service.

The new iQ4 will also enable subscribers with a compatible 4K TV to access Foxtel’s new 4K channel and enjoy Australia’s ultimate entertainment and sports service in HD and 4K UHD.

Foxtel in 4K arrives just in time for the November 4, Australia v. South Africa, Cricket ODI, which will kick off Foxtel’s sports coverage in 4K, bringing the sights of the game to fans like they’ve never seen it before.

The iQ4 marks the start of a new wave of innovations for Foxtel that will maximise the value of a Foxtel subscription. The iQ4 combines satellite delivery; incredible 4K programming via the 4K channel, along with a host of other linear channels, alongside a massive library of TV and movies to stream On Demand via the internet.

Patrick Delany, Foxtel CEO, said, “Innovation is in Foxtel’s DNA and we have continuously redefined entertainment for Australia putting us at the centre of connecting subscribers with the sports and the shows they love.”

“Today’s news is just the first step into a 4K future – this incredible experience will continue to expand as we bring even more sport and entertainment programming to life in guaranteed 4K, making the most of today’s ultra-modern 4K TVs. It’s TV like never before.”

Foxtel’s state-of-the-art satellite network will deliver Foxtel’s dedicated broadcast of 4K content to iQ4 set top boxes and is the only way to guarantee 4K delivery, every time.

I can’t believe Foxtel are going to forge forward with satellite tech, considering the whole installing a dish, cabling and giving people a box whilst charging an exorbitant fee per month would be considered by some as a prehistoric monopoly move. I think Foxtel just signed their death warranty as they really need to look for new ways to engage their audience and a better pricing model. And let me guess, it’ll be $10 a month for the privilege to watch 4K.

The whole Foxtel Now debacle was all about unifying the brand. Most of the people I know don’t refer to Now as “Foxtel Now” but simply as"Foxtel". It seemed like they were moving towards the future with that announcement.

Seems like the new CEO is stuck in the past. I liken this to if Telstra all of a sudden decided to start pushing copper phone lines on us all again.

you need to be on HD and Sports packages.

Doesn’t surprise me

My box will be here in 2-7 days.

Now to buy my UHD TV :slight_smile:

Recording a screen at an event using a non 4K camera then compressing it and popping it onto YouTube where it is going to compress even more, doesn’t do any favours for this presentation.

Foxtel in 4K set to take the chequered flag at Bathurst

• Key Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 events to make debut in 4K
• Ad break free coverage for the first time ever
• Supercars’ Great Race to be delivered like never before

Foxtel will create Australian television history by broadcasting the nation’s iconic motor race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and Supercars in 4K ultra high definition.

After intensive testing at the RABBLE.club Sandown 500 last weekend, Foxtel is now ready to show key events of the Bathurst Supercars weekend, including a Sunday replay of the Top Ten Shootout immediately before a live broadcast of Sunday’s main event, both in 4K and, for the first time ever, with no ad breaks during racing.

Patrick Delany, Foxtel CEO, said, “When we announced Foxtel in 4K a month ago we challenged ourselves to bring it to life as soon as possible and after an incredible amount of work we are delighted to bring Australians Bathurst like never before.

“We did a full test at Sandown last week and the pictures leapt off the screen in 4K, it was amazing – we are ready to go for Bathurst.

“It’s fitting that we will ring in a new era in Australian television with an event as big as the action at Mount Panorama.”

4K coverage of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 can be seen on Foxtel’s newly launched 4K channel 444. The 4K action will rev into gear on Sunday, October 7 with a replay of the Top Ten Shootout that will decide which Supercars driver will start on pole position, followed immediately after with the Supercars Great Race over 161 laps (1000km) live and in 4K.

For complete coverage, Foxtel subscribers will also be able to watch the live action of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, including the live Top Ten Shootout as well as every practice and qualifying session, uninterrupted, in HD on FOX SPORTS 506.

Mr Delany said: “The Foxtel 4K channel is included in the price of our HD offering for sports subscribers and above, and adds even more value for our HD customers. They just need to upgrade to the iQ4 set top box. With time running short, it’s important to book now so that you have the iQ4 ready to go for summer.”

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said 4K would revolutionise coverage of the Great Race.

“Supercars is a sport of colour, sound and movement,” he said. “The cars, the action, excitement and the colour of this iconic Australian event will be captured like never before. We couldn’t be any more excited.”

Fans will be able to warm up to the action with the Bathurst dedicated channel switching on October 1 on FOX SPORTS 506.

Bathurst Legends, including a special Craig Lowndes episode recapping his six victories on the Mountain, along with Supercars Trackside, Pit Lane Live and Supercars Life plus classic Bathurst races will feature on the channel.

Foxtel’s new, dedicated, 4K live channel will launch on October 3 on channel 444 and comes as part of a Foxtel Platinum HD or Foxtel Sports HD subscription for customers with an iQ4.

From launch, Foxtel 4K will showcase a host of 4K content including movies, documentaries, concerts and live sport, starting with select events from Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Over the next 12 months, Foxtel will continue to expand the selection of unique 4K content for subscribers, including the Australian 4K debut of live Cricket, which kicks off with the November 4, Australia v. South Africa, as part of the Gillette ODI Series.

The arrival of Foxtel’s 4K channel offers an unprecedented way to enjoy live sport, documentaries, movies and more, delivered through the iQ4, Foxtel’s most advanced streaming set top box via Australia’s only guaranteed 4K satellite signal.

“This history making step in Australian broadcasting is just one of a host of new innovations that Foxtel is launching that set the gold standard for in-home entertainment, and even more are on the way with new announcements coming every month.”

Following the Great Race, Foxtel’s 4K channel will continue to bring subscribers a host of 4K content including The Rolling Stones: Havana Moon , documenting the classic rock band’s historic concert in Havana, Cuba; The Big Wave Project , Tim Bonython’s award-winning masterpiece on the art of big wave riding; the musical genius of Pharrell Williams: Live from Hyde Park , nature documentaries, Spy in the Wild , Planet Earth II , and Deadly Australians .
