Telstra is killing off its old T-Box video recorders by reducing their functionality. Telstra is finally ending support for the T-Box at the end of March, planning to disable all of its streaming video apps with a firmware update and cancel any remaining Foxtel on T-Box subscriptions. Crippled apps and services will include Foxtel on T-Box, BigPond Movies on T-Box, SBS On Demand, Plus7, YouTube, AFL, NRL and Tune-In. The My Media app for playing files from USB storage or across a home network will also be removed, plus the T-Box Remote Application will be pulled from the Google Play and iTunes app stores.
