Foxtel will be available on the Telstra T-Box by May 2011.

Foxtel will be available on the Telstra T-Box by May 2011.

Telstra and Foxtel have signed an agreement that will let Telstra T-Box users stream and watch 30 Foxtel digital TV channels for free, including popular channels like FOX8, Discovery, Movie One and Showtime Premiere. In addition, more than 300 movies and television programs will be made available to T-Box users through Foxtel's On Demand service.

Seven BigPond TV channels are already available on the Telstra T-Box, as well as HD quality BigPond Movies on demand. The T-Box competes with the Foxtel iQ and TiVo HD set top boxes. A Telstra BigPond broadband Internet connection is required to use the video streaming features of the T-Box. The new Foxtel service offered through the Telstra T-Box will only be available to customers in existing Foxtel metropolitan coverage zones.

This move is another channel of distribution for Foxtel, which has made its television service available to Microsoft Xbox 360 users, Telstra customers on a post-paid iPhone plan and to online-only subscribers.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.
