I remember reading this article on stuff. I may have read similar from another source too, I can't remember.  Basically, it hints at some ISPs having an agreement with SKY which makes it difficult for them to unmeter other suppliers.

Except telstraclear don’t unmeter iSky either, so it makes that theory a little silly IMO. 

The only (large) ISP that unmeters iSky but doesn’t yet unmeter quickflix is Vodafone. The others either unmeter both or neither.

Quote from the Stuff article:

"some other providers had "ridiculous" clauses in agreements with Sky that prevented them zero-rating subscription entertainment services" 

So its more about the contract telstraclear have with Sky to provide the Sky channels over their network that prevent them unmetering.

I am on  telstraclear cable and I am about to sign up to Quickflix and try them out. So if the service stacks up then I would be very keen for unmetering.

I questioned this on TC FB page. This was their response..

"...it's still early days for QuickFlix and no decisions on umetering have been made yet. ^CD"
