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.

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.
