Hey Presto! Your favourite TV shows and movies in your palm

Filed under: ,,


By now, you’re probably heard of the new way to watch your favourite TV shows and movies when you want to. It’s called subscription video on demand (SVOD). Personally, I just call it video streaming.

I also like to think of it as the video equivalent of a degustation menu. You get to choose from a top selection of some of the finest and most-loved ad-free movies and TV shows.

Which is why I’m pretty excited about Telstra’s new partnership with Presto, one of the leaders in the rapidly evolving SVOD market.

This partnership gives Telstra the ability to offer our customers Presto TV, Presto Movies and Presto Entertainment services across a range of our product offerings – including for our Pre-Paid mobile customers.

It means terrific offers and new ways for you to enjoy your favourite TV shows and movies on Presto, via your mobile, tablet or other compatible devices.

Changing lives, one broadcast at a time


Yen, SYN‘s Young Media Leader for the Canberra Media Hub, ‘Young Folk Media’, shares the importance of youth radio.

The clock ticks down in the studio: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and we’re live “turn up your wireless, strap yourselves in, because its time…” There’s laughter, music and good conversation. Once a week I get to enjoy this process: collaborating and supporting young people to make radio.

In 2014 I was one of SYN Media’s Young Media Leaders, as part of the National Youth Media Project. I was one of five young people selected from around the country to be involved in training, planning and executing this national radio initiative.

The project – funded by the Telstra Foundation, Community Broadcasting Foundation and Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation – supports a new network of regional youth broadcasters on the premier digital station SYN Nation, including volunteers from my local community radio station, 2xx fm.

Gender equality – now it’s personal


When it comes to gender equality we all need to take a stand and be conscious of how small decisions at the individual level have an impact on the bigger picture, every day.

This week, we will see attention by organisations, governments and NGOs on International Women’s Day and the important issue of gender equality.

International Women’s Day (IWD) – the annual celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women – happens on 8 March.

The future of wearables


So here we are the start of 2015. The wearables market is only just at the beginning of a 10-year boom, which will unsettle business models and organisations in a much more pervasive way than the smartphone boom.

According to Gartner, more than 70 million fitness trackers and health gadgets were sold globally in 2014. The first wave of devices has focussed on wellness, but the future will be driven by harnessing the data to discover completely unexpected products and use cases.

The future of wearables will be less about the plastic on your wrist, and more about making sense of the data these devices generate to do something even more useful for the user.
