Furthering this conversation, Foxtel's executive director of content, product and delivery innovation Patrick Delany was the keynote speaker at Microsoft's ReMix conference in Melbourne yesterday, discussing the ways this newly formed partnership would help Foxtel overcome one of its major weaknesses to date: the ability for subscribers to effectively search for content and share recommendations.
To demonstrate future possibilities, the ReMix team put together a demonstration using Microsoft Surface, a Windows Phone 7 handset and, a device we had assumed was dead in the water, the HP Slate.
Foxtel has been available to Telstra customers on phones for sometime, but what you'll see in this gallery is about as far from streaming media as you can get.
As we mentioned before, Foxtel wants to be a part of the way its users share their favourite shows, to be a part of the conversations we have. In this picture, the coffee cup starts the conversation by linking to a few TV favourites.
