Was intrigued to read on the Sky On-Demand review (http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/73706997/sky-on-demand-an-evolution-with-potential) that Vodafone were planning on bringing it to Vodafone TV customers. 

"We are looking forward to bringing Sky On Demand to our customers through our exclusive partnership with Sky, and also to Vodafone TV customers," Williams said.


It'd be nice to hear from Vodafone about their plans.

Perhaps their super awesome cable network is why they are delaying people getting this, as its easy to deflect blame to netflix/youtube/hulu/lightbox when its not something you are selling, but if they put sky ondemand in their product they are selling, when that doesnt work, that just leaves blaming peoples computers, routers (except they supply that now too) and wifi for failures rather than their own oversubscribed conjested network.

As somebody who is stuck with Vodafone cable at least until 2019, I hope that VF don't proceed with this plan - cable can barely cope with its existing workload, even after the recent upgrades.

According to a recent letter from VF, the cable data load is already increasing by 30% per month, so VF are chasing their tails..

Surely VF do not own the network anyway? Don't Chorus own the copper and/or fibre?

Well that would make no difference to those of us not forced to live cheek by jowl in cities! We don't get such wonders out here. We're lucky to get VDSL internet never mind cable TV.

Now we have clarified which cable we are talking about, surely the cable TV does not serve many people anyway?

If it were not for VF Cable all I would have here is ADSL, no Fibre, no VDSL. Fibre not scheduled until circa 2017-2018.

It maybe the recent upgrades but the VF Cable has been working great here.
