Telstra's long-planned home content device the T-Box goes on sale today, just in time for the bulk of the FIFA World Cup.
The T-Box isTelstra's best chance at taking on the likes of TiVo, Sony's Catchup TV and Fetch TV in the home entertainment market.
Unlike Foxtel, the T-Box has a no contract option. The T-Box will be priced from $299 outright, or available under a Telstra 24-month contract.
T-Box users will be able to watch and record Digital TV, connect to popular sites such as YouTube and other social networking services, download music (from the BigPond Music store) and the latest movies on demand.
BigPond TV offers a mix of NRL, AFL and other sporting content. Users will be able to record it all, just as they can with a TiVo or Foxtel IQ2 box.
