One of the little known features of the Apple TV, is the ability to subscribe to some content services, and bill this back to your iTunes account. Similar to In-App purchases in your favorite apps on your iPhone or iPad, which are taken out of your iTunes credit before eating into your credit card, the same process exists on the Apple TV.
There are very few apps on the Apple TV that support these ‘in-app purchases’ with iTunes as your billing method, but two of them in Australia are Stan, or Netflix. While the Stan and Netflix iOS apps don’t support in-app purchases, the Apple TV ‘apps’ do, meaning you must have an Apple TV, and can’t make use of this trick with an iPhone or iPad.
Originally launching as ‘Telstra WiFi’, as part of a push to build a WiFi Nation, Telstra has now decided on calling it’s network ‘Telstra Air’.

Telstra Air is set to launch next Tuesday, 30th June.
