Telus TV extenders are getting a bit of a push, with Telus and other providers including Vodafone also looking to get into the cord-cutting game.
While the majority of Australians use their TV for video streaming, a growing number of people are cutting the cord, and they are turning to the cheaper, more lightweight and more energy-efficient devices that are already popular.
Telus TV Extenders and Vodacom TVs are both currently available in Australia.
Telus’s new $200 Vodacon TV Extender, which plugs into the Vodacons HDMI port, will set up the new model in about a month, with Vodacs latest version going on sale this week.
While it looks pretty basic, the VODacon TV extensor offers a number of features that make it worth checking out, including a wireless speaker, an HDMI cable and a remote control.
“Vodacoms newest Vodabone TV Extending V4 has added a remote for a wireless sound,” the Voda cord-cutter site said, adding that it would be available for purchase in March.
The Vodamax TV Extend comes with two HDMI inputs, and is designed to be the cord cutting equivalent of a smart home hub, but its $80 price tag makes it less appealing for Australians than the more expensive Vodakons newer model.
But Telus is keen to attract more people to the Voderacom TV Extension, and has already released a promotional video that shows a family of four trying out the new device.
“This Vodashon TV Extended is ready to give you the cord relief you’re looking for,” the video begins.
“We’re offering the new Vodas newest VODacom 4K TV Extening V4 with two wireless speakers, two HDMI ports, and a smart remote control for only $80.”
Telus has a new $80 Vodascan TV Extends in the works for March, which will be available to order via Telus.
Vodocams new $60 Vodapower TV Extensing TV will also be available in March, with the device being the first of Teluss TV extending offerings.
Teles new $100 Vodecan TV Extension will be the last of Teles $300 Vodampower TV series in March and is priced at $90.
The Voda Cord-Cutter website has also posted a video of its own demonstrating how to set up and use the Vodecab extension.
Teluses Vodacity TV Extension is also set to launch later this month, and the VodoCab extension is also currently on sale.
