Telstra Executive Director of Media J-B Rousselot said the changes are in response to customer feedback.

“Our customers told us that they wanted changes in three key areas: available channels, content on those channels and price packaging. Our female audience told us they were missing the Lifestyle, LifeStyle YOU and ARENA and our male audience said they wanted more sport.

“Our Mobile FOXTEL customers also really enjoy the live channels, so we are increasing to 14 live channels and all our looped channels will longer in duration providing our customers with more of the content they want, when they want it.

“Finally, they wanted simple packages, so we are changing  from six choices to three that spell out exactly what they are getting; the Value pack, Ultimate pack and Ultimate pack plus Sport,” Mr Rousselot said

The Mobile Foxtel service complements Telstra’s FOXTEL on T-Box service which also has over 30 Channels with simple packages and pricing. T-Box customers can sign up on a monthly basis from $19.50 per month for the Get Started package.
