It is not unmetered, i.e. Quickflix traffic will be counted towards datacap.

Also there is a deal on tivo, which I think you get 2 free months. I also had an offer form HP for a 2 months free trial when I registered a new HP device.  I'm not giving it a go, becuase they require a credit card to be entered to qualify for the free trial, so you can't just get the free trial and automatically be unsubscribed from the service at the end of the free trial, if you chose not to sign up to the paid service. I could be wrong about this, but that is the way I read it. Also with it using bandwidth, and not being unmetered is a turn off. If they partnered with an ISP s, which could make it unmetered I may give them a go. We do certainly need them in the market to bring in more competition, but the content is also problem.

I expect they need to get a critical mass of subscribers to make the service viable, which could then lead to improved content - but which comes first - the chicken or the egg?
