There was talk of a trial to stream TV into homes using fibre - it was a separate feed from the ONT, and was separate to the internet. I never heard the conclusion.  Wonder if it is anything alone those lines.

 

 

 

 

Its not.

It is a logical move - many ISP's have moved into providing content, so why would a content provider take it lying down and not push back the other way?

 

 

Good point.  That was announced in May 2018.  Its been crickets ever since.  Wonder what ever happened to the trial and its findings?

If Sky owns an ISP, that probably gives them more ability to have their say to the Goverment in censoring what content people can access. Site blocking censorship for streaming sites etc, like Australia has..

Any ideas on what their ISP will be called? I'd be a bit iffy about joining if the name was "Skynet"

 

 

"Skyfall"

 

Aligns their ISP with their share price.

I don't think it will matter whether Sky is an ISP or not for that.

 

Sky kicked up a stink some years ago and got Orcon to drop their 'global mode' feature on the grounds that it was undermining their content rights.

You mean Sky, TVNZ, Lightbox (Spark) and Mediaworks kicked up a stick, dont you?

I honestly don't recall. I'll take your word for it.

Point remaining is that rights holders complain about perceived or real disadvantages in other media.
