Telstra T-Box customers will be able to get Foxtel channels via their Telstra T-Box following the signing of an agreement between the two companies.
The agreement will see 30 Foxtel’s channels – including Fox8, Discovery, Fox Sports Play, Movie One and Showtime Premiere – streamed directly to the T-Box and unmetered via either a BigPond ADSL or cable broadband service. The service will be available in metropolitan areas where Foxtel subscription services are already available.
In addition to the 2000 plus films already available for download through BigPond Movies,Foxtel on T-Box will soon include On Demand television. Featuring more than 300 titles, this also includes a range of catch-up movies and TV programs.
Telstra BigPond will also become Foxtel’s preferred internet service provider and extend unmetered Foxtel via broadband content for BigPond ADSL and cable customers to other Telstra supported devices. More Telstra supported devices, including IPTV-enabled televisions, will be announced in the months ahead.
The Telstra T-Box currently offers customers the ability to pause, rewind and record live free-to-air TV, with storage of up to 100 hours of content. After launch this feature is intended to be available to all the FOXTEL on T-Box channels.
Packages and pricing, as well as the full channel line-up will be announced closer to launch.
