This will depend on what service your device is connected to. Here’s a list of the different services and how they use data:

  1. Telstra home internet service When you watch the Foxtel app at home on a Telstra home internet service the data is unmetered. So it doesn’t use up any of your monthly data allowance
  2. Non-Telstra home internet service If you watch the Foxtel app on another internet service it will use some of your plan’s monthly data allowance.
  3. Mobile networks If you watch the Foxtel app on any mobile network, including the Telstra mobile network, it will use some of your mobile plan’s monthly data allowance.
