TiVo’s retail reach within Australia is expanding after the Seven Media Group announced Thursday that JB Hi-Fi will this month commence selling the product in its stores.

JB Hi-Fi joins TiVio launch partner Harvey Norman, which has had the exclusive rights to sell TiVo since its launch in Australia on July 29.

“Australian consumers today are quite savvy and willing to invest in digital devices that will stay relevant over time as well as bring ongoing services and benefits. We believe the TiVo media device will achieve this”, said Richard Uechtritz, CEO of JB Hi-Fi in a statement.

The TiVo media device is a high definition set top box and recorder, allowing users to simultaneously record up to two free-to-air TV channels and watch a third channel live.

“We are pleased to welcome JB Hi-Fi into the fold of retailers for our all-important first year of Christmas trading,” said Hybrid Television Services’ CEO, Robbee Minicola. Hybrid Television Services is a subsidiary of the Seven Media Group

TiVo will be available in 100 JB Hi-Fi and Clive Anthony stores across Australia and will continue to retail at the launch price of $699.

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.

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