Currently getting Freeview via fibre from Vodafone, contract almost up with them and wondering if anyone knows of another provider or service reseller that I could use to continue getting it over fibre rather than the sat service.

Thanks in advance.

No, if you want freeview its either Vodfone TV over Fibre/Cable, DVB-T with a UHF Antenna or DVB-S with a satellite

Do you plan to leave vodafone for your fibre?

Damn, I thought that might be the case.  Yes looking to leave, switch deals are always better than the stay ones.  It has been a good service but I think could be replaced with Netflix or something like it.  If the TVNZ/TV3 services were Chromecast compatible I wouldn't have to worry about Freeview.

Call up the retention service and they might offer you a good deal to stay with them
