Telstra: “We are committed to T-Box”

Australia’s Telstra has confirmed that it remains fully committed to its hybrid DTT+IP television service ‘T-Box’, following recent rumours that it was planning to shutter the service.

A spokesperson told IP&TV News that the rumours are “uninformed speculation”, adding: “We are committed to the T-Box”. The spokesperson did however confirm that Ben Kinealy, Head of IPTV at Telstra, resigned from the company last week.

Online news source The Register carried a report yesterday (here) which stated that Telstra will be closing its television service as part of preparations for the contentious Foxtel-Austar merger.

Telstra has made considerable progress with its T-Box service recently, including racking up 300,000 subscribers and winning the award for “Best TV Service Innovation” at the IP&TV Awards held in London last March (full details here).
