Telstra offers Mobile Foxtel on the iPhone

Access via other handsets to be made available soon

iPhone users will be the first to gain access to a new video streaming service running over Telstra’s NextG network.

With the service, Telstra customers can stream more than 30 Mobile FOXTEL channels to any OS 3.1 and above iPhone with improved viewing quality and stereo sound.

Freddie Jansen Van Nieuwenhuizen, director, Telstra Product Management, said the iPhone was the logical first-choice platform as users of the device were already accustomed to consuming a vast array of media on their devices.

Channels available on Mobile FOXTEL include FOX 8, FOX Sports News TV, Fashion TV and MTV.

Telstra already offers video-on-demand services available via its BigPond TV and BigPond Sports applications.

Users of other mobile devices will gain access to the new Mobile Foxtel service as Telstra rolls out a range of new Telstra NextG handsets over coming months.

Access to Mobile FOXTEL starts at $4 for a day pack up to $18 per month for the Mobile FOXTEL Ultimate Combo.

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
