It's okay, but for a Google app I expect a bit more. Can't customize anything? Also had some issues trying to connect to my Chromecast. Hopefully they fix this and then I can think about using the app more often.

Even if you’ve been a long-time Foxtel customer, you might be surprised to learn that your cable provider also has turned its TV guide into its own official app! And you’ve only just signed up for a package, it's the guide you need to know what kind of channels and shows that you’re in for.

View real-time information on hundreds of shows that are on-air from channels such as “Lifestyle +2” to “Nickelodeon.” You can also set up simple alerts for upcoming episodes or even record them in case you can’t make it.

▲Tap on the show to learn more about the details of the ongoing episode in every “Foxtel” channel.

▲You can also record the episode using your Foxtel account.

▲If you’ve found a show you’re following, you can prepare for the next episode by just setting the reminder.

Sometimes when you’re about to turn on the TV, you’re better off knowing what’s on so you know you’ll like what you see. That’s what the TV guides of old were for anyway. Despite that, ordering them was costly and finding them around the house was as tough as finding the remote. This takes away that trouble for all Foxtel customers. Use it to check what’s showing up on the news or make it your handy guide for suggesting your children on cartoons or movies they can watch. When you’re surfing on Foxtel channels, you’ll need a fast way to find out!
