In a New Zealand-first, one of the country’s biggest media companies and one of the biggest telcos have got together to give TelstraClear customers access to all MediaWorks’ TV and Radio websites. This means that TV3’s on-demand service and the MediaWorks family of streaming radio stations won’t count towards a customer’s monthly data.
“TelstraClear is a leader in providing Kiwi Internet users with unmetered content with TradeMe, the On3 Network, Clernet Video, Ziln and the TelstraClear Steam server already free to customers,” says Steve Jackson, head of consumer markets for TelstraClear. “We’re committed to providing customers with high quality, reliable and good-value Internet and telecommunications services. Earlier this month we announced for our broadband customers increased data at no cost. Now we’re making that go even further with more unmetered content.”
“We’ve always wanted to offer the market unmetered access to the MediaWorks Interactive sites and TelstraClear makes a great partner for this as they have been providing us with telecommunication services for many years,” says Siobhan McKenna, MediaWorks’ Director of Interactive. “Effective immediately, all TelstraClear customers can browse unmetered our family of websites. Whether watching TV shows on Demand, checking the news or weather, entering contests, or listening to our award-winning radio stations, they can be confident that it’s not using any of their data pack.”
Unmetered MediaWorks sites for TelstraClear broadband customers include the TV3 and FOUR channels and their Video on Demand services as well as radio sites for The Edge, The Rock, MORE FM, Kiwi FM, RadioLIVE, LiveSPORT, Solid Gold, The Breeze, George FM and Mai FM.
