mulac: If you guys are interested, I have been in to the shop today to view it. I have been advised that the unit will cost $499 to buy or $15 a month to hire (much the same as Sky). They will also be charging the $10 HD ticket. It looks to me as if MySkiHDi will be the best bet here, as you will have a guaranteed box for the world cup.
As for you, TelstraClear; when you say the Beta Phase will be available to Customers, does this mean ALL of Telstra's customers will be able to take advantage of the Beta unit within the next couple of weeks? And if you can only install 2,000 boxes a month, how will you be sorting out who gets the boxes first, will it be a first in first served thing? Will the pre-registered have priority?
We are working very closely with our install partners in both cities to maximise the number of installation. We will be able install many more per day than normally.
When we announce the launch/first install day, we will first advise all the registered customers (via e-mail) and ask that they confirm their order via e-mail and then our telemarketing team will call you back to book the best install time for you. So get your registration in to ensure you are notified. I will advise this forum when the e-mail is being sent.
