Telstra TV will offer Netflix, Presto and Stan

Will offer rebranded Roku streaming boxes

Telstra TV will offer access to the big three streaming video-on-demand (SVOD) services as Telstra looks to cement its place in the competitive market.

The telco will rebrand and offer Roku streaming devices following its soft launch in September. Roku streaming devices have already garnered some popularity in the the US, Canada and the UK, said Joe Pollard, Telstra’s general managing director of media and marketing.

“Rather than restrict our customers’ choices, we want to host all the popular streaming video services on our platforms and make it easy for them to get all the content they want in the one place,” he said in a statement.

Telstra already has a stake in the SVOD market with Presto, which is a 50-50 venture between it and News Corp.

Presto will be offered alongside local rival Stan, a 50-50 venture between Nine Entertainment Co and Fairfax, and recent market entrant Netflix, under the Telstra TV service.

Joining the SVOD offerings will be a selection of catch up TV options and new release movies from BigPond Movies.

Telstra TV will have its soft launch on 15 September and will be offered as part of a bundle on 29 September. It will join Telstra’s existing services, which include TBox and Foxtel, with pricing details to be made available closer to the date of launch.

Specs for the Telstra TV box follow as per Telstra Exchange.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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 910

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.
