CBS All Access coming to Australia, Telstra dumps 3rd party billing and what’s hot at IFA in Berlin: Vertical Hold – Episode 142

CBS is buying Channel 10 and bringing its All Access streaming service down under, while Telstra ditches 3rd party mobile billing and IFA unfolds with all new tech goodies in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Linksys.

We’re joined this week by TV commentator Steve Molk from decider.tv to talk the impact of CBS buying Channel 10, and specifically what it’s likely to mean for the local streaming scene. Also, Star Trek gets a mention, just once or twice. Listen out for that one.

Meanwhile, at IFA, there are new phones, new laptops and a new alliance of spoken word assistants, but who really wins when Cortana and Alexa get into bed with each other?

Telstra’s dropping direct third party billing for mobile services, but what will this mean for your mobile spend, and will other telcos follow suit? All this and more in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!
