That's interesting because skygo is blocked by airplay.  for the record so is TVNZ ondemand and 3now.

From their website

NEON is your ticket to escape on your computer, iPad or iPhone* anytime. We’ll also have AirPlay support and handy tips on how to connect to your TV screen with a HDMI cable. Look out for Xbox 360 and selected Samsung devices coming soon.

Oh sorry, I didn't think you were telling porkies... I did believe you.

I guess the difference is Neon is an IPTV only service and normal sky is not.   If they made skygo high quality and able to use airplay then they could wave bye bye to any profits from multi-room.

Don't worry, I didn't think you were accusing me of such. I just posted that there for clarity for you and other readers :-)

I think the announcement of a bundled VOD offering as part of the MySky package in the New Year is designed to prevent Neon cannibalising the existing subscriber base.

So what's the deal with the small print on P19 of VF's latest brochure?

NEON services will cease to be provided after 12 months.

Is that related to the fact that it's blurb about Vodafone Unlimited on a 12 month term, or something else?

Yes that is a reference to Vodafone's contract with you as a customer, not to Neon TV
