With customer viewing habits continuing to evolve and more people watching on demand, we’ve made the decision to keep a step ahead by replacing the World Movies channel with a dedicated on demand library. The change also streamlines our on demand offer by putting a curated collection of the best in world cinema within easy reach for international film fans.
What happens next?
From 1 February 2018 World Movies will move to On Demand^, replacing the World Movies channel which will no longer be available on Foxtel and will be removed from all Movies packs on this date.
World Movies on Foxtel On Demand brings nearly 100 titles from the World Movies library available to stream or download, when you want, all as part of your subscription, and joins the highly acclaimed Walter Presents, known for delivering some of the world’s best foreign language dramas.
For those of you still looking for a live experience, be sure to tune in to Foxtel Movies Masterpiece on Wednesdays, starting 3 January, for our World Movies screenings hosted by Margaret Pomeranz with films from acclaimed directors, such as Pedro Almodovar, Werner Rainer Fassbender, Xavier Dolan, Wong Kar Wai, Seijun Suzuki, Werner Herzog and others.
