Looking forward to this.

 

Sometimes it's not so bad being a Telstra customer :)

God that reminds me how bad ACA is. A half hour self serving infomercial masquerading as ?

 

But that's not really the thrust of this thread is it :) The Roku offering looks interesting. Seems Telstra are going with Roku 2 even though Roku 3 is already out.

 

Not sure why it needs to be Telstra dependent? I believe you can already put Netflix, Stan, Presto etc. onto current model Roku's (and point them to US content) if you want?

 

Details so far seem to be a single $30 per month buys a Presto, Stand and Netflix bundle. Probably $100 for the Roku box. The big caveat will be Netflix and Stan will still count towards your monthly Telstra data limit.

I wonder how long before the Roku gets 't-boxed' (ie dropped).

Maybe it'll play 25/50fps content properly?

Here's Roku's comparison

 

Again I wonder what extra Telstra is really offering (They'll presumably try lock down their Telstra TV). Perhaps they will be aggregating all three providers and you'll just see a single interface with all Netflix, Stan and Presto content in the same format?

Also Telstra TV will have catch up FTA tv like Jumpin which is missing on most other devices
