Pretty sure satellite will be around for a while purely due to sport and rural NZ. Its price may go up though if they run a fully digital package side by side and I would buy a cheaper digital option if offered.

 

 

I know that Foxtel work on a different economies of scale (6 times the population, higher %age regional and rural, craptasic broadband), but when they introduced Foxtel Now the satellite price did not change. I cannot see satellite delivery ending any time soon. While there are some (myself included) that don't watch much linear tv, there are plenty of others that do, and like the convenience of everything (including FTA + My Sky) in a single STB.

 

 

There is no indication that satellite prices will change. They are getting a lower cost fee, 30 million. Transmission is about 99 million at the moment, this also includes truck rolls to events, and possibly also commentary costs. I expect the pricing to remit unchanged. I also expect that free installs will be a thing of the past. A free dish, a free install for a 6 month contract is a losing money venture. This would help more migrate away, and if they cease fully in 2026, plenty of time to help slow movers migrate. 

 

The other issue is that the presentation appears to be based on fibre. Im unsure what happens of all this started tomorrow, for those on ADSL. I assume VDSL would surly be covered. I know people with NF etc on ADSL, it works.

Would Sky provide their own hardware for this or could we run an app on the likes of Apple TV? (or both?)

Sky have indicated that there will be next-gen STB's, IP pucks (like a rebranded Roku as per the UK) and apps.  No indication of the types of functionality on the puck or the app I dont think.  The Investor Day presentation discusses it.

Shelved until a buyer brings a delivery vehicle or the capital input to fund the vehicle maybe?

Do you have a source on this? Or is it just based on the fact we haven't heard a peep since it was announced?

Sounds like they still don't get it and sadly their plan is a seperate device.

I imagine (and hope) it is going to be like Foxtel Now. You can either get a box/puck that has a FTA tuner, and apps for Sky, Netflix, Lightbox, TVNZoD and others. Or you can use an app on your iPhone / Android device that has Chromecast support. Anything less would be a huge let down in terms of usability (IMO), and not drive the growth that Sky are seeking.

From the AGM address:  "

 

Over the next 12 months you will see us roll out new technology and ways of accessing SKY, starting with the new online TV box that the team just outlined. "

 

 

 

I imagine if you were at the AGM you might have got more information.  I seem to recall newspaper articles talking about Q119 or early 2019.  DYOR.
