Found this on NBR:

TelstraClear has teamed with Auckland company e-cast to create a new internet TV service, “Ziln TV”, which will stream free from both clear.net.nz and ziln.co.nz.
e-cast told NBR that at its highest resolution (768Kbit/s) the TV service would see around 300MB an hour of data stream over a person’s internet connection. That would mean many people could exhaust their monthly data cap in a day. However, TelstraClear is accessing whether to “zero-rate” Ziln’s data, meaning it wouldn’t count toward a monthly cap.


Link: http://www.nbr.co.nz/article/telstraclear-e-cast-team-launch-internet-tv-service-109207

The channel line up consist mainly of news channels, but I'm impressed :)

Not sure if Ziln is new or not, but this article is about TelstraClear *possibly* zero-rating data to Ziln. Suppose Orcon could follow suit, and include it in its O Zone thing.

yep, pretty much all those channels are FTA from all their providers via sat, so I would be pretty p1ssed if I had to pay my data allowance to view them.

I got to there from the Ziln website. They want to offer some free content and some on-demand content not for free
