Fibre provisions 72mb/s for Vodafone TV.
Possible speed issue but its not suitable for TV.

Delivering IPTV requires a CIR and multicast. Neither are currently available over the current VDSL2 product offering.

That really depends what your definition of "can it be done as a regular stream is".

If we're talking about a single channel, yes it could. But we're talking about 100+ channels covering 800Mbps of traffic here, so the answer to your question is no. There would be no guaranteed QoS and exceptionally inefficient delivery with no multicast.

Hi i seem to remember when Vodafone TV was first being launched that they talked about a limited flavour of V TV possibly being available on VDSL but try as i might i cant remember where i saw it.

Ahh found the article http://www.nbr.co.nz/vodafone-ufb

IMO there's too much varience in VDSL speeds between users to be able to successfully roll out a VDSL version of the current Vodafone TV offering.
The issue wouldn't be that much around you must have X Mbps to use this, it would be the "Oh I've got VDSL,I'll change my sky over to get this".

Unfortantly not everyone is like @TimA and gets 60Mbps off their connection tongue-out, With the majority I've seen somewhere between 20Mbps and 40Mbps

An on demand Netflix style service I could see working but for a standard "Tv" service where people would expect the same style of Watch one channel record 2 others, you're better of getting Sky / Freeview.


/Standard disclaimer, This is my own opinion not Vodafones, blah blah blah, I don't work in the TV side of things so have no idea whether or not they're working on such a product.

Maybe just the FTA main networks?
1,2,3,4,prime, maori, choice, sommet sport etc

I'm not sure what point their would be sending out people a STB that could only pick up a limited number of FTA channels.

Deploying any large scale service without multicast is also doomed from the start and multicast isn't currently available with the wholesale VDSL2 offering.

I wouldn't bother with a set-top-box that streamed the FTA channels. If you have broadband fast enough to do that you can probably receive them already.

I was thinking of streams for PC / Tablet viewing, not via a STB
