Foxtel associates your Foxtel on Xbox 360 account with your Xbox console's serial number to create an Xbox ID automatically during set-up. If you refurbish your console, purchase a new one or update the Foxtel software on your console, visit the Foxtel website to reset the Xbox ID.
If you have problems changing or removing an Xbox 360 console from your Foxtel account or if you have to do this multiple times in any month, contact Foxtel Support by calling 131 999 or visiting Foxtel.com.

If you use Family Settings to control which films and TV programmes can be watched through Xbox Live on your console, the Foxtel app will follow those settings. For example, if you use parental controls to restrict some kinds of TV programmes, those shows will be marked with a “restricted” icon in the Foxtel app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.
For more information about how to control access to Xbox Live content by using Family Settings, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
