Foxtel Prepares Flash of On-Demand News Feed – Pickr

You have plenty of ways to check the news, but if news is what you dig, a new service that mixes live news is coming.

There will be yet another streaming service joining Australia next month, and if watching news from around the world is your jam, it might be a good fit for you.

Referred to as “Flash,” Foxtel hasn’t exactly indicated what news the new service will cover, beyond recognition of “over 20 local and global live news services.”

Considering that Foxtel already offers no less than ten news services on its service, including four from Sky News, as well as BBC World News, CNN and CNBC, we would say that there is a fairly easy bet that the Flash service will cover. what Foxtel is currently presenting. a, with more to be announced.

However, Foxtel expects Flash to tap into the number of Australians entering streaming services, joining the recent arrival of Paramount + in what is clearly a crowded assortment of choices, including Netflix, Stan, Disney +, Hayo, Amazon Prime Video, and others, before we even mention local catch-up services.

There’s also, of course, Foxtel’s own flavor of on-demand streaming services launched over the past two years, with the Kayo sports service and Foxtel’s streaming style in what is Binge.

“Flash will not be what the market expects,” said Patrick Delany, CEO of the Foxtel group.

“It will be more than just aggregating live channels,” he said. “Our experience and technology platform allow us to leverage Kayo’s features and innovations to deliver an exceptional information experience to our subscribers. “

While Foxtel hasn’t said how much Flash will cost, it likely won’t be a free service like the news service offered by ABC News 24, ABC’s free live news service in Australia. However, it will launch next month, so we’ll know exactly what it offers and how much you can expect to pay in the not too distant future.
