Foxtel Launching 30 New Channels This Year

So when that Optus D3 Satellite goes up this month, Foxtel will get a chunk of the extra bandwidth to launch some new channels. How many channels you ask? 30 new channels, according to the Courier Mail.

Jennifer Dudley-Nicholson managed to track down Foxtel’s Patrick Delany, and he confessed that the Pay TV company would be adding 20 SD and 10 HD channels to their service by the end of the year.

The launch of the channels will coincide with an overhaul of their EPG, while the company is also planning on offering over 400 hours of catch-up TV that you can download and watch on a PC as part of your package.

There’s no announcement on what the new channels will actually be yet, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough. Things are looking pretty exciting for Foxtel customers over the last half of this year though…
