Hello,

 

Just wondering if there were any Good News stories in regards to changing over to Vodafone Fibre, VTV and Vodafone Sky.

 

Just doing my due diligence, and there appears to be a lot of negative stories/experiences out there.

 

Has a sales rep cold call on Fri and we went through all the options, could save use approx $40 odd a month if we change to Fibre 100/30, VTV Sky + Multi-room etc etc.  (currently with WXC VDSL 50/10MB and SkyTV)

 

Also need to confirm that I can also sent the signal from the STB to other TVs in the house as we currently do with sky.  The sales rep says this is now possible. 

 

Any feedback welcomes, positive or negative.   I've got 5 working days in which to cancel this contract.

 

Regards, Richard

How do you get the signal to other TV's now? Most people use RF which is the worst possible option in terms of quality.

 

You can feed any STB to other TV's, but it's going to depend entirely on how you want to do this and what you expectations of quality are.

Currently using a conversion box (RF i guess) that i purchased off the sky installer at the time.  Quality with this is not the greatest by it is view able in the other rooms, more like SD than HD in comparison.  I was thinking that I could still use this method and box with a VTV STB, but am unsure of what connections/outlets it has.

My Vodafone TV is perfect in every way! Nothing wrong with it at all! Recordings record fully. TV episodes play with no lag. What more could I want : )
