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?
