Are you like me in thinking that its about time they made a bit more of an announcement.

TelstraClear Promises HD

As far as I recall this is the first annoucement from them mentioning HD.

And again the mention PVRs, but I think this has been on the cards for a while, still very short on details....

You got me excited with your headline for a second there until I read the article - no details at all.  I'm guessing it's a long way off yet.

The ultimate would be Telstra replaying both SkyHD and FreeviewHD.

Come on, lets get real about if TCL or any other Pay TV provider will release a box that allows remote content access... it will never happen.  They will find the cheapest and least functional PVR on the market... Like the MySky!

Last time I checked, dreams were free :D

We can live in hope.  But no I recognise there'd be no money in it for the content providers so why would they supply such a box...

I wonder what DRM will be on the new Sky Online service. Apparently it's available to existing Sky users sometime this week. So will that apply to TCL customers? I ask, because apparently for TCL broadband users, the downloads won't count towards their cap.

Rgr. Windows Media. TVNZondemand used it, but then canned it once a bunch of people started cracking it. Now they only allow streaming. Word is most of the files will have DRM will allow the file to be viewed as many times within 7 days of downloading.

A PVR with built in DLNA would be fantastic. That way the likes of the PS3 would be able to view the saved files, or any PC.

I sent a message to the TCL customer service guys and they came back saying that they have no plans to offer the service at this stage.

Looks like either they didn't think to work in a deal to allow TCL customers to use the service too or the customer service ppl don't know about it
