Foxtel iQ5 coming 2021..
Foxtel iQ5 is only available to “select Foxtel subscribers” from early September 2021. It will become more widely available later this year.
Foxtel iQ5 offers the choice of receiving Foxtel channels via a satellite dish on your roof or streamed over the internet (not cable). To clarify, right now Foxtel customers receive Foxtel over satellite or HFC cable. iQ5 receives from an internet streaming signal over HFC or a broadband connection.
BUT… there are NO free-to-air channels. If you want to watch and record free-to-air, you need to connect the Foxtel iQ5 to your aerial wall socket.
A detachable 1 TB hard drive on the Foxtel iQ5 should be good for 345 hours of SD recordings, 172 hours of HD or only 45 hours of Ultra HD.
Personalisation and recommendation features plus, you can use the remote to browse and search using voice commands
No Disney+, Apple TV+ or Stan.
