Netflix in the US is available across just about everything from smart TVs to consoles to toasters. OK, maybe not toasters, yet. Netflix in Australia' has been coy about its device availability up until now, but it has just announced its first launch platform device.


We've known for a while that Optus was planning to offer its own version of the FetchTV platform, and it finally goes on sale this week.

This week, IPTV service FetchTV is adding the YouTube on TV interface, making it simpler to browse YouTube videos via your TV set.

iiNet has added a second bundle to its FetchTV TV-over-the-Internet offering. It's only half the price of the original FetchTV package and doesn't require an ADSL2 connection, but you miss out on monthly access to 30 free movies and the "on command" library of watch-on-demand shows..
