Foxtel Go is the biggest thing we’ve launched since digital and iQ, it lets customers take their entertainment with them on the go, and as the App is included with a customer’s subscription, it’s a fantastic value proposition. We’re really excited and we think our customers will love this new way to watch Foxtel.”
