Foxtel iQ2 ($200 + monthly subscription fee)

The 2010 World Cup isn’t airing on Pay TV, but there’s no reason why you can’t use Foxtel's iQ2 to record it. The device is much more stylish than its iQ predecessor with a glossy piano black finish. The buttons on the front are well laid out and the blue iQ indicator looks suitably futuristic. It’s also fairly compact considering it packs in a 320GB hard drive and no less than four digital tuners. You can watch one television channel and record two others simultaneously.

Naturally, the Foxtel iQ2 grants users the ability to record all the Foxtel channels they subscribe to. You can also record, pause and rewind live TV. On the downside, subscribing costs $10 a month on top of your regular Foxtel fee.
