And if you are with TelstraClear Broadband (Clearnet or paradise.net) the streaming is unmetered and does not add gigabytes to your usage volume.
Enjoy!

I can't wait to see how bad the video quality is! (If it's anything like what's on clearnet already... come on, at LEAST 480p!)

Hmmm. Compared to YouTube and others, TelstraClear video is looking pretty good!  (PDG!)
It is always a trade off between quality and the bandwidth required. We broadcast in 512x288 (16:9) at ~400Kbps. No doubt, we will improve the resolution/quality as broadband quality in NZ improves.

I hear you brother, but as per Olof comment, walk before you can run aye? We broadcast online at the same picture quality as 3News currently. Obviously we will look at HD options further down the track, but for now, anyone who cant go to Armageddon at least gets an opportunity to join in, and in my view, that is still pretty damn cool!
