Android gets foxy with new Foxtel app


In another case of Android playing catchup to Apple, Foxtel has now released its Foxtel TV Guide to the Android Market.


The App seems to be a full port of its iOS equivalent, and means Android users with Foxtel iQ can use their phone to Remote Record TV shows to plan their viewing and record shows directly to the iQ.

'Since the launch of the iPhone and iPad Foxtel TV Guide, our customers have rushed to use their phones and tablets to Remote Record their favourite shows, and we've experienced a significant increase in customers using their phone to view the TV Guide and Remote Record shows straight to their iQ. Subscribers love it,' said Patrick Delany, Foxtel Executive Director of Product Development and Sales.

'Smart devices provide another way for customers to control their viewing experience, and having the Foxtel TV Guide App on a wide variety of Android mobile and tablet devices makes it even easier for our customers to plan their viewing and Remote Record shows straight to their iQ, putting more viewers in control,' continued Delany.

The app also follows a similar version for Windows Phone 7, although Microsoft and Foxtel have an arrangement also involving Microsoft's Xbox 360.

To download the Foxtel TV Guide application, users can visit the Android Market and search for 'Foxtel'. The application is free and available to both Foxtel subscribers and non-subscribers, and apparently works across all Android Smartphones and tablets.
