Rural gamers, rejoice! It was just announced that anyone in the country can now access the Foxtel on 360 service, meaning you can stream Foxtel channels direct to your Xbox 360 console.
This move to is thanks to Foxtel’s recent acquisition of Austar.
Addtionally, Foxtel also announced a new Olympics pack, featuring eight sports-filled channels, at an extra charge. Those interested in the service, or in new channel packs, can check out the Foxtel on 360 website for more information.
If you're big on the Olympics, don't forget: as far as we're aware, this service is only unmetered for Telstra BigPond customers. Check with your ISP before you go nuts.
