Samsung and Foxtel team up for Internet TV effort

Foxtel on Internet TV only $20 per month for basic package

Foxtel has launched a streaming Internet TV subscription on some Samsung Smart TVs, with a range of channels at a much cheaper price than its existing cable service.

Adding to Samsung's existing Smart TV features, the standard definition Foxtel on Internet TV service can be configured with up to 30 channels. The base package of 10 channels is $19.50 per month, and can be bolstered with additional Movies, Sports and Entertainment channel packs.

There is no installation or setup fee, the service has no long-term contracts, and can be cancelled within any given month. As with other Foxtel services, a London 2012 Olympics package with eight channels can be purchased for a one-off $50 fee.

Australia has traditionally been an afterthought for video-on-demand providers, and access to streaming first-run TV shows has been limited in the past. Foxtel on Internet TV will only be available to users with a broadband service, with at least 2MBps of bandwidth or higher.

The service is only available to purchasers of a selected range of 2011 and 2012 Samsung Smart TVs including Series 5, Series 6, Series 7 and Series 8 models. The service is unmetered for Telstra BigPond customers, but users on other ISPs will see the streaming service contribute to their monthly download quotas.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
