"Telstra today revealed it would launch its Linux-based
T-Box integrated media centre set-top box from mid-June at a
stand-alone price point of $299, with a sledload of free and
pay-per-view content available and an associated revamp of its
broadband plans in the works.
"The device – built by IPTV specialist Netgem —
includes two digital TV tuners and a 320GB hard disk for video
recording functionality, as well as a flexible internet video
platform that is designed to function as a conduit for a variety of
content from Telstra's burgeoning Media division, as well as
third-party services such as YouTube.
"For example, at launch the T-Box will be able to access seven
standard definition digital channels from Telstra's BigPond TV
division, ranging from a 24×7 news channel, to live horse
racing, sports news, Australian Football League and National Rugby
League match replays and news, V8 Supercars and music."
