Sony Australia has just announced that Foxtel Play is now available on PlayStation 3 consoles in Australia, with a launch for the PlayStation 4 coming soon. The announcement, it seems, has been timed for the first episode of Game of Thrones Season 4, which is shown exclusively on Foxtel in Australia.
"We’re thrilled to continue our drive to expand availability of Foxtel Play for Australian subscribers," said Rohan Lund, Foxtel’s Chief Operating Officer.
The Foxtel app should be available for download on the PlayStation Network from today.
"Foxtel Play is a fantastic addition to our suite of entertainment services," said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia, "one that all the family can enjoy."
The Foxtel Play app gives customers access to over 45 Live channels, however it is worth noting that access to Game of Thrones requires an additional subscription. Users will also have to subscribe to Premium Drama and Movies Tier in order to watch the show. Foxtel has announced that there will be a discount, starting from today, that will allow users to subscribe to this service at a reduced cost.
