sbiddle:ckc: You used to be able to just get TV from Telstra,
In the entire history of Vodafone, TelstraClear, TelstraSaturn you've never been able to buy TV just by itself. TV by itself existed in the Kiwi Cable days, and in the very early days as Saturn, but once Saturn expanded from Kapiti into Wellington, overlaid copper for their phone services and moved to bundling Sky channels rather than sourcing their content directly you've never been able to take TV by itself, it's always had to be bundled with either phone or internet. Historically this was because of their Sky resale agreement, now it's probably just a business decision.
Telstra did it for us in 2009 in Wellington.
