Australian telco Telstra has announced a partnership with global video streaming platform Roku, to launch Telstra TV – a new Australian streaming service.
Telstra TV will add to Telstra’s existing entertainment services, which include TBox and Foxtel from Telstra products. It will offer customers the three leading subscription video on demand services – Presto, Stan and Netflix (via the new service), alongside a selection of TV catch up services and the latest new release movies from BigPond Movies, Australia’s leading online movie rental store.
“We are already the network of choice for video for many customers around Australia and the demand for video content will only increase the need for superior networks to deliver this content,” reads a statement from Telstra. “Rather than restrict our customers’ choices, we want to host all the popular streaming video services on our platforms and make it easy for them to get all the content they want in the one place.”
