TBox Versus Telstra TV

I have a T Box on a TV  in one room and a a Telstra TV on a TV in another room.  I am able to get streaming of past Channel 9 shows on the Telstra TV and would like to be able to do the same on the other TV.


I would have thought that if the newer Telstra TV offers that facility, I would have also been able to get it on the older and more expensive TBox but that does not appear to be the case.  Is that so, please?  If so, that means that I will have to buy a Telstra TV to get just one TV channel that I want.


The TBox streams another couple of TV channels - Channel 7 and SBS (I think!) as do my multiple Apple TVs and my Sony smart TVs but I would have thought that the TBox could provide the same functionality for Channel 9.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: TBox Versus Telstra TV

My understanding is that because the T-Box had a more closed platform that it was never developed for as much and no agreements were ever made for the other FTA packages.

Given it has been discontinued I would surprised if they were to develop and release apps for the T-Box now.
