Don't know exactly where this lives in the forum; but has anyone seen this:

http://ziln.co.nz./

What affect do you think it will eventually have on the Freeveiw audiance? They are aiming for 10% of the market and seem to have a good offering.

I looked at this and it seemed pretty good, BUT, whats the point when there is such a small cap on data in this country?? Kinda makes it unusable if I have a 10 or 20 GB limit...

IMO unless a major ISP such as telecom get on board and make this unmetered this idea will not go that far.

TelstraClear is a big support of this service, and also posted here on Geekzone about it.

However, I think the channel lineup is weak (hopefully they don't go the way of Joost), the picture quality has to be much better than it is now for me to even consider watching it, and it should be zero-rated - at least on TelstraClear which is their biggest supporter.

I don't see major channels putting their programmes on there and I am not prepared to watch pixelated pictures in lieu of HD TV.

Prove me wrong on 1st September when they officially go live.

if this was unmetered, it'd be fantastic.

I watched some last night, the quality of the stream is pretty good, considering how streaming video usually performs.
Finally I can watch Stratos/Triangle (not on Freeview HD dammit!) DW, Al Jazeera etc.
Also the Archives New Zealand section content is great!

I have stuck with Go Large, so no data cap for me to worry about :)

I wonder if they could add NASA TV streams somehow?
Quality of ziln.co.nz stream is definitely superior to the NASA TV stream from the USA.

if you want internet TV this is probably the best one and its free, there is a lot of weird stuff but you do get BBC world and the ITV channels, the cricket is also on

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Asked the question.

"Thanks for your email to us.


We'd love to have NASA but unfortunately they removed the channel from the only satellite we could receive here.


We are hoping they will replace it but do not know yet.


Hope you continue to enjoy our other channels.


Thanks,






Gresham Bradley
Director Online Development
Ziln & e-cast Ltd."
