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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
