announce the national launch of the T-Box, a new TV experience that seamlessly blends broadcast and broadband content including, for the first time, YouTube videos and BigPond TV service.
BigPond TV includes sports, news and music channels, BigPond Movies, plus a library of on-demand videos. T-Box was created using Netgem’s powerful and innovative NetgemTV middleware and Media Centre STB technology that, with its agile, open application framework, allows content and applications to easily be deployed over TV.
The launch of the T-Box to Telstra’s eligible broadband households enables Telstra, one of the largest telecom operators in the world, to introduce HD free to air TV, BigPond TV and YouTube videos to one set top box and accessible through a single remote. BigPond content is unmetered and exclusive for BigPond customers with no monthly subscription fees on top of their regular internet connection.
