As the Seven Network TiVo service looks set to bite the dust in Australia arch rival Telstra has said that subscribers to their T-Box IPTV service will now get 30 channels of Foxtel.  They have also announced that more than 120,000 customers are now using T Box.

The deal first tipped by SmartHouse in 2010 will see 30 Foxtel 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 from FOXTEL. Featuring more than 300 titles, this also includes a wide range of catch-up movies and TV programs.

Telstra Chief Executive Officer David Thodey said, “With T-Boxes in close to 120,000 Australian homes, Telstra is helping to usher in a new era of internet-delivered home entertainment across Australia”.

He added “Our customers are telling us they love the existing seven BigPond TV channels and more than 2000 on-demand BigPond Movies, and with the new unmetered Foxtel on T-Box service for BigPond ADSL and cable customers they will be spoilt for choice.

ChannelNews has been told that Telstra is close to getting access to first run movies after recent discussions with several Hollywood movie houses recently.
