“Television is finally leaving the living room,” Julian Lee reports for The Sydney Morning Herald. “The day before Apple is expected to announce an Australian music and video download service, Foxtel has announced a portable device to watch pay TV on the go.”
“The details are sketchy, but Foxtel today promised to launch a portable digital TV device within 18 months. The device would be available only to Foxtel digital TV subscribers who own the iQ ‘personal video recorder,’” Lee reports.
“Apple is holding a press conference in Sydney tomorrow, at which it is expected to unveil a long-awaited Australian version of its iTunes [Music Store], which will sell music and possibly video. The United States version of iTunes already sells popular TV shows for $US2 each,” Lee reports.
