BoxSets is an Australian pay television channel, screening boxsets of hit drama and comedy programming. The channel launched on Foxtel on 3 November 2014.
On 4 September 2014, Foxtel announced that on 3 November 2014 they would launch a new channel (BoxSets) which would feature boxsets of successful and popular TV series. The channel would be available as both a linear channel and a video on demand service (available through internet-connected Foxtel set top boxes and through Foxtel's streaming app Foxtel Go). The news comes as Foxtel has increased competition from IPTV services (namely Netflix) and the increasing prevalence of binge-watching among viewers.
Later that month it was announced Joanna Lumley had been signed to produce advertisements for BoxSets. The ad design is the same as the one used by sister company Sky (UK and Ireland) for their On Demand service which has a similar premise as BoxSets.
Following the success of BoxSets, Foxtel launched a second whole seasons channel Binge in October 2016. BoxSets will be moved to channel 115 with Binge launching on channel 116.
Note: Programming availability may vary between the linear channel and video on demand service.
