Zombie hottie Jon Snow

You can now hook your eyeballs into Foxtel's relaunched streaming service - Foxtel Now - on your PlayStation 4 thanks to a newly launched app. The app's arriving in the PlayStation Store just in time for Game of Thrones season seven, which starts on Monday.

If you've got a PlayStation 4 or a PlayStation 4 Pro, you can download the Foxtel Now app through the PlayStation Store. If you've yet to sign up, new subscriptions come with a free two-week trial.

Foxtel Now is also available on iOS, Android, Chromecast, Telstra TV, and Google Chrome on Windows and Mac.

Foxtel says it will continue to release Foxtel Now apps for other devices in the coming months, but for now, subscribers can keep using the Foxtel Play app on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Foxtel Play app does however limit you to standard definition, which isn't ideal for perving on zombie hottie Jon Snow.

Born out of the ashes of Foxtel Play, Foxtel Now is intended as a proper Netflix alternative, while previous attempts were more focused on live TV. Live TV is still available through Foxtel Now, which is kind of important if you're hoping to enjoy the service's sport offering.

Pricing starts at as little as $10 per month, but will cost you as much as $104 if you want everything Foxtel has to offer. Other than Sport and Movies, each package can be bought as a standalone product. For example, the drama pack - which gets you access to Game of Thrones - is available for $15 per month.

Foxtel Now is contract free, so you can cancel at any time.
