Just wondering if anyone had heard (or any Telstra people can let us know) where Sky subscribers through Telstra will be regarding this service.


It looks like according to this page we will not get free data allowances but my main question is will there be some way we can tell Sky our subscriber number (with Sky via Telstra) so we can even use this service.

I meant to say only the data agreement won't be avail to Telstra due to their affiliation with other video streaming providers.

newznz: You will not be able to use iSky with Telstra because they have affiliations with other streaming video providers.


What? Where does it say that only those with the partnered ISPs will have access to iSky? It only says you get free data if you're with a partnered ISPs - doesn't explicitly rule out users with other ISPs.

another thumbs down for telstra. iSky could come into great use for me.

sadly, I won't  be getting no free data from telstra.

I guess I'll have to stick to their "free" video server called clearnet... oh boi

I dont mind paying to access it I would just like to be able to access it as I have actually paid for the Sky channels (but via Telstra).
