All of the nice, precise dates like '19 March' have been changed to 'soon'.

Sigh.  Anybody know anything of what 'soon' means?

Surely they're just ironing out the last minute bugs - but why are they holding back on an in-store demo?

Soon means anytime within the next eighteen months, pretty much the same as they have been saying for the last eighteen months.

As long as they keep hanging out the carrot that the release will be soon less people will desert TC TV and go to Sky, clever salesmanship. The poor buggers in the retail shop are the ones to really feel sorry for, they are just as much in the dark as we are. Only difference is they are expected to give out the same line of BS as TC.

If I see anyone in a "telstra" tee shirt I will punch them in the knee! So frustrated on the constant date changes. They must think we are idiots?

I used the TelstraClear 'contact us' thing to ask them, and got this reply:

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately we have experienced technical difficulties with this product which has caused delays with release.

At this stage I am unable to advise timeframes around this, but are hoping for release within the next month or two.

As for when the website will be updated, again I am unable to advise.

I also found this Stuff article from 1 March with a bit more detail.

95% there they say, they've got their first bulk shipment of boxes they say.

Who knows what to believe, but I'd back them to be conservative and not go to market half baked, (cough)XT(cough).
