    You will be charged in arrears for any MAIN EVENT that you order via the MyFoxtel app, online and FOXTEL Remote Control and watch during your Billing Cycle. For example, if your Billing Date falls on the 3rd of each month, you will be charged for any MAIN EVENT that you order between February 3 and March 2, on your March 3 Billing Date. You can view your bill via MyFoxtel app, which is available on the Apple store and Google Play or visit Foxtel.com.au/myaccount

    It’s best to keep your own record of any MAIN EVENT that you order and watch each month. Generally, you will only be able to receive this information on your next Billing Date and sometimes it may be the Billing Date after that. If you receive a statement, MAIN EVENT purchases will be visible on your statement. If you don't receive a statement this information is available through your bill which you can download via MyFoxtel app, which is available on the Apple store and Google Play or visit Foxtel.com.au/myaccount or by phoning 131 999 on or after your next Billing Date.

  • How can I limit the number of MAIN EVENTs viewed in my household?

    You can limit the number of MAIN EVENTs viewed using FOXTEL’s Parental Control which can block an entire channel, so that it can only be accessed using your Parental Control PIN.

Your account will be charged regardless of whether the MAIN EVENT is viewed or not.

Once this has been done please contact FOXTEL on 131 999 * Is your landline operating on a prepaid phone?
