One month ago to the day Sony and Foxtel announced that they would be bringing Foxtel Play to the PlayStation 3. Now Sony is announcing that the same package is being brought to next-generation consoles with the PlayStation 4.
"Foxtel is pleased to bring access to Foxtel Play to PlayStation 4 fans after only one month since its arrival on PlayStation 3," said Rohan Lund, CEO of Foxtel. "We are continuing to up the ante across the number of ways people can view Foxtel Play, and PlayStation 4 is an excellent platform to make our next generation console debut on."
And that is an interesting point to note: the PlayStation 4 has beaten the Xbox One to the punch with Foxtel this time round.
Apparently the Foxtel take up on PlayStation 3 has been solid, and Foxtel is keen to deliver the same service to folks using the PlayStation 4.
"Foxtel Play on PS3 has already seen an enthusiastic response in the thirty days since launch," claimed Lund.
It's a timely addition. Media functionality has been looking a little sparse on the PlayStation 4 here in Australia, with only Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited, Quickflix, IGN, and VidZone being made available. It's good to see more options being made available to Australians.
