"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."
