Can anyone from Vodafone confirm whether video from Sky Online is definitely 'zero rated'?

I can find no mention of it yet on the Vodafone website

Also, can there please be a way to get around the FAQ when i ring the 0800 number?  I just sat for 7 mins on hold, to get cut off.  I can't be bothered listening to all that again.

Sorry to not go through official channels, my phone call got cut off, and I can't submit any question without logging in.

TIA

Its only being advertised by Sky as zero rated.  Im sure one of the VF officials on here will confirm.

exactly, I don't have total faith in the Herald, they have been know for 'factual inaccuracies' in the past.  Undecided

I just hoped someone like Paul may be able clarify from Vodafone's POV

John, this can't even be compared to the Sky Mobile. Sky Online allows you to download and warch movies on-demand over the Internet. Very different from the mobile proposition.

Correct, I was referring to this.  Which is a VOD service, very similar to what TVNZ were running with TVNZ on Demand for a short while.

I have read on the Herald that with Vodafone and some other ISP's the traffic is 'zero rated' but cannot find any concrete confirmation from Vodafone. As I have said before, I don't hold much faith in the factual accuracy of what is reported in the Herald without confirmation from the affected party :)

I just want to check this before 'going mad' (well not really) checking the service out properly.

I can confirm that Sky Online traffic is charged exactly the same way all other traffic is charged. That also applies to TVNZ on-demand service.
