Foxtel on new and refurbished Xbox consoles
Foxtel associates your Foxtel on Xbox 360 account with your Xbox console's serial number to create an Xbox ID automatically during setup. 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.

Upgrade from a previous version of the Foxtel app
On 15 May 2012, a new version of the Foxtel app was released. If you used the previous version of the app, you will have to delete the old version of the Foxtel app and then download the new version to continue using the Foxtel service on Xbox 360.

- From the Xbox Dashboard, go to settings, select System, and then select Storage.
- Select Hard Drive, and then select Games.
- Highlight Foxtel on Xbox.
- Press the Y button and delete the application.
- Restart your console, and then reinstall the Foxtel on Xbox app.
As part of the update process, you have to register your Xbox 360 with the Foxtel service. To do this, go to the Foxtel website.

Use Family Settings to control access to content
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 programs, 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.
