Good to see that TelstraClear isn't abandoning Unmetered - but the only notable addition here is TV3 and 4. It's a pity their videos aren't particularly high quality.

Anyone else think it strange the announcement video is on Vimeo.com and the Unmetered video hosting sites are not used?

Haha, yes, I thought that was a bit funny. But of course those sites aren't generic video hosting sites (hmm actually Clearnet might have been a good fit). Maybe TelstraClear can make Vimeo unmetered ;)

Does this mean I can watch TV3 on demand via my Internet enabled TV without it affecting my data usage? Thanks.

Hi Frank. If you are a TelstraClear customer, you can watch TV3 On Demand unmetered on any device attached to your network that is connected to the Internet through TelstraClear. So, if your TV is connected to the net through TelstraClear, watching TV3 On Demand on it will be unmetered.

Are you confident in being able to provide users with unmetered Steam downloads? This has caused problems for other providers recently.

It's good though - games are huge and local unmetered digital delivery is neat.

Cheers - N

Youtube?


Now that would be both useful and practical, given TelstraClear's Youtube cache. Doubt it'd ever happen though, since I'm guessing Youtube accounts for a good chunk of users' data usage - especially lower-end users who don't do so much filesharing, etc.

More problematic might be that any cache, by its nature, is apt to have only a portion of content in it. How to explain that a certain site MIGHT be unmetered---or not?

Of course - the solution is to unmeter it all, regardless of whether it's cached or not, on the hypothesis that the majority of the traffic is through the cache. There's at least one NZ ISP that has unmetered Youtube - Snap, I think.

When Snap launched the YouTube add-on they did say an unmetered iTunes add-on would be coming..

Unmetered iTunes data would be great. We don't watch TV here (except a couple of programs) and if we missed an episode is not that big deal.

But movie rental on iTunes? Yes, we are big on that...

Apparently a future version of the Steam client is going to have the option to restrict downloads to only the selected content mirror.

Until then they of course can't.
