Telstra has launched its video-streaming device Telstra TV, allowing its customers to supplement its T-Box and subscription pay-TV service Foxtel services already on offer with access to streaming services Netflix, Presto, and Stan; as well as catch-up services SBS on Demand, Plus,7 and 9JumpIn.
What a bizarre little device. It’s a rebranded Roku 2, just as the Roku 4 is announced. It doesn’t include all available Roku apps, most noticeably absent is Plex. ABC iView is missing. It’s locked down to Telstra for no technical reason, but that lock down will lower the unit’s resale value and give the device a shorter shelf life. All for just $109.
