Apparently it's a 49X7000F: https://www.sony.co.nz/electronics/support/televisions-projectors-lcd-tvs-android-/kd-49x7500f/specifications

There was some confusion around models.

 

 

 

I've had it clarified as https://www.sony.co.nz/electronics/support/televisions-projectors-lcd-tvs-android-/kd-49x7500f/specifications

Seems like a good deal given we're in the market for a new 4K TV. Pity landline customers aren't included in the deal, it might've kept us from moving to VoIP in the short term.

I tried to get one through the online chat and was told they sold out at 1pm. I bet there will be a few on trade me since they allowed 2 per customer. Bit bummed because we need a new TV but a Veon will do the trick.

So it launched today, and they sold out by 1pm! That’s a bit poor.
Did they only have 30 in stock?

With respect to this, how many do you expect them to hold.

 

Its a 1st in 1st served. Can't blame Spark if they sell out quick on a good deal.

They probably are a bit shy after getting 100,000 Tivo's and struggeling to shift them :-)

Confirmed this morning, offer has ended.

 

 

 

I can't comment on volumes as a figure but can say it was a significant volume.
