Telstra TV will offer Netflix, Presto and Stan

Will offer rebranded Roku streaming boxes

Telstra TV will offer access to the big three streaming video-on-demand (SVOD) services as Telstra looks to cement its place in the competitive market.

The telco will rebrand and offer Roku streaming devices following its soft launch in September. Roku streaming devices have already garnered some popularity in the the US, Canada and the UK, said Joe Pollard, Telstra’s general managing director of media and marketing.

“Rather than restrict our customers’ choices, we want to host all the popular streaming video services on our platforms and make it easy for them to get all the content they want in the one place,” he said in a statement.

Telstra already has a stake in the SVOD market with Presto, which is a 50-50 venture between it and News Corp.

Presto will be offered alongside local rival Stan, a 50-50 venture between Nine Entertainment Co and Fairfax, and recent market entrant Netflix, under the Telstra TV service.

Joining the SVOD offerings will be a selection of catch up TV options and new release movies from BigPond Movies.

Telstra TV will have its soft launch on 15 September and will be offered as part of a bundle on 29 September. It will join Telstra’s existing services, which include TBox and Foxtel, with pricing details to be made available closer to the date of launch.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
