Telstra TV® has changed the way many of us consume TV shows and Movies at home.
Now Telstra TV is changing. From Tuesday 31 October 2017, there will be some important updates coming to the Telstra TV and Telstra TV App, including improvements for Telstra broadband customers. There’s no need to do anything- this transition will happen automatically over the course of a few weeks.
Telstra TV Updates
New-look, content-led home screen.
Telstra TV will be getting a new look content-led home screen meaning that you can find TV shows and movies without having to open individual apps. The new home screen makes titles, actors and directors the focus, to help you explore content.
Introducing ‘Telstra TV Recommends’
Discovering movies and shows will be easier with the introduction of “Telstra TV Recommends”, where we recommend content from our apps.
Enhanced search functionality
Updated and improved search functionality means that you will be able to search for a specific title across multiple content providers. It includes synopsis information and a summary of where you can watch that title. Telstra TV will recognise which apps you have an existing subscription to, to allow you to watch.
As we are making available the new and enhanced search functionality to Telstra TV customers over the coming weeks, the existing search functionality will periodically by unavailable as we are preparing the update. You can continue to search and launch movies and TV shows by pairing your Telstra TV device to the Telstra TV mobile app (on a Telstra broadband connection or logged in using your Telstra ID). Using the Telstra TV mobile app, you can select to play movies and TV shows on your Telstra TV.
From 31st October 2017, Telstra TV customers who are not connected through a Telstra Broadband connection will not have access to the full functionality of Telstra TV- including search, the updated Telstra TV home screen, Telstra TV App remote pairing and My List reminders (see below for more on this).
Telstra TV App Updates
Exclusively for Telstra Customers, there will be several updates made to the Telstra TV App including Carousel Content Discovery, Notifications and Reminders as well as updates to the In App Telstra TV Remote.
