briefly Telstra has celebrated the winning of an award at the prestigious IPTV World Forum for its home entertainment device, the T-Box.
The company beat out competitors from a range of varying backgrounds to win the “Best TV Service Innovation” award, with rivals for the award including AT&T U-verse TV, Vodafone TV, VideoGuard Connect and the Verizon FiOS TV application for Microsoft’s Xbox console.
“Since the T-Box launched in 2010 we have aimed to provide our T-Box customers with compelling content over a range of exclusive channels and the vast library of titles on BigPond Movies,” J-B Rousselot, Executive Director of Media, Applications and User Experience at Telstra said in a statement.
“We also believed the T-Box experience should be easy for our customers to use so we have not only been focusing on content but also applications including a remote control app for smartphones and tablets and service upgrades for faster streaming, all to provide a better user experience for our customers,” Rousselot continued.
The T-Box can be purchased outright for $299 or added to one of the company’s Internet bundles.
