Good news, rural gamers! Now you can get Foxtel through your Xbox 360 console no matter where you are in the country.
Foxtel on Xbox 360 had only been available to metropolitan customers previously, but now, thanks to Foxtel's acquisition of Austar the product is available nationwide.
The new development brings over 30 Foxtel channels to regional users also connected to the Xbox Live service. If you're a die-hard sports fan, it's worth noting that for an additional charge, you can sign up for Foxtel's eight additional Olympics channels.
The service is still unmetered for Telstra BigPond customers only.
