Foxtel subscribers have had access to TV downloads since last year. Now regional Australia gets its chance to burn through download limits with Austar launching its own online streaming service, Austar AnyWhere.
While Foxtel’s offering was download-only, Austar AnyWhere can also be accessed via a browser. One big advantage of that approach is that it works on Macs as well as Windows machines. There’s no ISP peering deals in place, though, so you’ll need to keep a careful eye on your download quota.
Austar says 400 hours of TV are currently available on the service, with new episodes rotated in weekly. If you’ve given it a try with your Austar account, tell us about it in the comments
