Samsung and Foxtel team up for Internet TV effort

Foxtel on Internet TV only $20 per month for basic package

Foxtel has launched a streaming Internet TV subscription on some Samsung Smart TVs, with a range of channels at a much cheaper price than its existing cable service.

Adding to Samsung's existing Smart TV features, the standard definition Foxtel on Internet TV service can be configured with up to 30 channels. The base package of 10 channels is $19.50 per month, and can be bolstered with additional Movies, Sports and Entertainment channel packs.

There is no installation or setup fee, the service has no long-term contracts, and can be cancelled within any given month. As with other Foxtel services, a London 2012 Olympics package with eight channels can be purchased for a one-off $50 fee.

Australia has traditionally been an afterthought for video-on-demand providers, and access to streaming first-run TV shows has been limited in the past. Foxtel on Internet TV will only be available to users with a broadband service, with at least 2MBps of bandwidth or higher.

The service is only available to purchasers of a selected range of 2011 and 2012 Samsung Smart TVs including Series 5, Series 6, Series 7 and Series 8 models. The service is unmetered for Telstra BigPond customers, but users on other ISPs will see the streaming service contribute to their monthly download quotas.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
