Foxtel – Good Bye Set-Top Box – Hello Dongle

The Australian TV provider giant has announced that you will no longer need clunky set-top boxes in your living room. Instead you can watch movies by simply plugging in the Google Chromecast dongle.

Foxtel has an on demand app called Presto (both Android and iOS) which is going to work with Chromecast so you can browse the movies on your mobile device and get it straight on to your big screen.

The company said:
“Starting today, subscribers will be able to see the full potential of Presto as it takes to the big screen in living rooms across the country. Combine that with availability on selected Android tablets, and Presto becomes an even more compelling way to watch great movies.”
Pretty neat as far as we are concerned, something more cable companies across the globe should enable.
