Foxtel finally comes to the Sony PlayStation

Foxtel's Play video-on-demand service is now available to Australia's 2 million PlayStation owners

Foxtel’s Play video-on-demand (VOD) service is now available on Sony’s PlayStation 3, with the content provider pledging future support for the next-generation PlayStation 4.

Over 45 of Foxtel’s live channels can be watched over an active broadband connection on the PlayStation 3. The video-on-demand service gives Australia's 2 million PS3 subscribers access to Foxtel’s strong range of sports, movies, and entertainment content.

Subscribers to Foxtel Play will get access to Foxtel Go, which enables streaming to select Apple and Samsung phones and tablets.

Sony's gaming console lingered behind Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console, which has supported Foxtel Play since 2010. Other devices that feature the video-on-demand service include select Samsung smart TVs, Blu-ray players and home theatre devices; PCs and Macs, and select LG smart TVs.

Pricing for Foxtel Play is calculated on a month-by-month basis. It is priced at $25 for one package, $35 for two, $45 for three and $50 for four packs. New Foxtel customers can trial the service for 14 days at no cost.

Currently Foxtel is discounting the $25 Premium Movies and Drama pack — which includes TV shows Game of Thrones, Mad Men and House of cards — by offering it for $10 for per month for the first three months.

Foxtel has been increasing the breadth of products it supports. The company recently launched Presto, a subsidiary video-on-demand service that leverages Foxtel's VOD movie portfolio with support for select Apple iPads, Mac computers and PCs.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.
