Telstra TV

Answered

Will Telstra TV work on the 4 g network? As we are rural WA and Foxtel is crap. To many repeats and to expensive to have the extra packages for more repeats so looking at Telstra TV

Re: Telstra TV

theoretically yes, but it depends a lot on quality and reliability of signal..  A usb dongle won't do it , but a 4G wi-fi dongle/wingle should do, or a home wireless broadband modem.. . Have that device n a location with good signal and not too far from the TTV.  But, be aware that it will use a lot of data..  3Gb/hour maybe if streaming in HD..

 

A wireless broadband 4G device with external antenna ports would improve signal on top of that, with the right antenna.

Thanks Steve.  We only have 245 gb per month allowance. We have reasonable signal strength. Have the night hawk modem

Re: Telstra TV

That TTV should connect to the NightHawk wi-fi ok and work OK..  data will be the killer.

 

Whichever way you do it it will come down to data - roughly speaking you'd get less than 80 hours at HD, but more if you stuck to SD.

 

Even watching video fro Youtube and the like, netflix, stan or similar would consume data on top of the subscription, unavoidable really.
