Foxtel finally comes to the Sony PlayStation

Foxtel's Play video-on-demand service is now available to Australia's 2 million PlayStation owners

Foxtel’s Play video-on-demand (VOD) service is now available on Sony’s PlayStation 3, with the content provider pledging future support for the next-generation PlayStation 4.

Over 45 of Foxtel’s live channels can be watched over an active broadband connection on the PlayStation 3. The video-on-demand service gives Australia's 2 million PS3 subscribers access to Foxtel’s strong range of sports, movies, and entertainment content.

Subscribers to Foxtel Play will get access to Foxtel Go, which enables streaming to select Apple and Samsung phones and tablets.

Sony's gaming console lingered behind Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console, which has supported Foxtel Play since 2010. Other devices that feature the video-on-demand service include select Samsung smart TVs, Blu-ray players and home theatre devices; PCs and Macs, and select LG smart TVs.

Pricing for Foxtel Play is calculated on a month-by-month basis. It is priced at $25 for one package, $35 for two, $45 for three and $50 for four packs. New Foxtel customers can trial the service for 14 days at no cost.

Currently Foxtel is discounting the $25 Premium Movies and Drama pack — which includes TV shows Game of Thrones, Mad Men and House of cards — by offering it for $10 for per month for the first three months.

Foxtel has been increasing the breadth of products it supports. The company recently launched Presto, a subsidiary video-on-demand service that leverages Foxtel's VOD movie portfolio with support for select Apple iPads, Mac computers and PCs.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
