I would use TVNZ On Demand on occasion, but the quality is not all that great. If I'm going to have to pay to watch it, I may as well find a torrent of the same content (but better quality)!

Snackos: Don't worry guys, you have the NZ Herald!!! A worthy replacement. What, all 20 megs of traffic it must take up a month.

I'd be more interested if they added Steam. Hell, even Windows Update.

HAHA Totally windows update would be more beneficial than any of the stuff they got on there at the moment. Steam would be great or Xbox Live and PSN. 


Or apple updates. Each time I need an ios updates that 600MB of data or more

Oh that's a stink one. I found ondemand really handy. I too had just signed a contract for a year just a couple of months ago. Last month I used 1.3gb of ozone zero rated data, All TVNZ ondemand. And just over 1gb combined for the 2 previous months. Was a good added bonus, and now Orcons offerings are the poorer for it.

I would love to Steam on any provider as it has recently been something I found myself using when I purchased Dungeon Siege 3 had to install Steam now I have Team Fortress 2, DS 3 and GTA San Andreas on Steam and already have my eyes on a few upcoming titles too (I prefer my RPG's on a PC).

As for those interested in Gaming sites and free content Xnet have a partnership with Gameplanet that allows for all of their traffic is zero rated. I love watching HD Gaming clips im not paying for. Plus there's a few actual gaming servers through the site as well (older games though sadly).

Otherwise it's all Xbox for me (please note I do not watch clips or movies through Xbox for me it's all about the gaming.
