Telstra TV Box Office
Telstra TV Box Office
Backed by many years of experience as one of Australia’s first full-scale online digital movie stores, Telstra TV Box Office is the natural evolution of the service formerly known as Bigpond Movies. The reason for leaving the old name behind is the hugely popular Telstra TV box, which tightly integrates Telstra TV Box Office as a service. Offering latest-release and classic movies to rent and buy – as well as a selection of TV series that can be purchased by the season or as individual episodes – Telstra TV Box Office is an easy and affordable way to bring Hollywood home without leaving the comfort of your couch.
What Makes Telstra TV Box Office Different?
The key to Telstra TV Box Office lies in its name. While you can still stream movies and shows from the service on your mobile devices and your computers, it’s on the Telstra TV streaming device that Box Office comes to life. Tightly integrated with the universal search introduced on Telstra TV 2 – and now the voice search on the latest third-generation device – Box Office movies and shows are seamlessly included with your search results. If you spot a movie that sounds like a great idea for a rental, you can order it directly from the on-screen interface and be streaming your movie in high definition within seconds. Because Telstra TV is linked to your existing Telstra account, you can have movie rentals and purchases put on your Telstra bill for convenience. And for new purchasers of the Telstra TV 3, there’s $125 worth of Box Office credit waiting for you – enough to rent around 20 new-release movies.
What Programs Does Telstra TV Box Office Have?
Whether it’s latest-release movies straight from the cinemas, classic flicks that you can’t wait to see again, or a nice long TV series to sink your teeth into, Telstra TV Box Office has it covered. The idea is to give you idea for a great night in, and so if you browse the Box Office catalogue you’ll find movies set up as themed collections – “Superhero Movies”, “Sequels Prequels and Spinoffs” and Sci-Fi, for example. There’s also a special section for Open Captioned movies – these come with subtitles permanently on screen so the hard of hearing can get watching without messing around with subtitle settings.
You can also browse by genre and, of course, page through the latest blockbusters – from Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born to Bumblebee and Aquaman. If you’d prefer to have a copy of the movie to keep, you can buy most movies as well – they’re permanently added to your account to stream whenever you like.
TV show fans are taken care of with a wide range of complete seasons available to buy. You can buy individual episodes or pick up an entire season at a discounted price, with all your episodes added to your account for watching and re-watching. Whether it’s the historical high drama of The Walking Dead, Vikings, and Outlander, contemporary thrills with The Blacklist and The Americans or a solid dose of reality TV, there’s TV here for everyone.
Telstra TV Box Office in a Broadband Bundle
With the service tightly integrated with the Telstra TV box – and the Telstra TV tightly integrated with Telstra Broadband – the ideal way to get yourself set up for instant entertainment is to pick up a bundle that brings it all together.
There are two Telstra Home Broadband plans that bundle the Telstra TV and a solid helping of Box Office goodness, both of which come with fast NBN broadband, a home phone with unlimited calls Australia-wide, Telstra’s latest Smart Modem Gen2 – and the brand new Telstra TV 3 along with $125 of Telstra TV Box Office credit to spend on whatever you want to watch.
If you’re a light user who watches one or two shows a night, there’s a 200GB plan that could save you some money – but for peace of mind, the Unlimited plan comes in at $99 per month all inclusive.
It’s a great package that gives you everything you need for communication and entertainment in the one place.
