Telecom and Hybrid TV bring TiVo to NZ living rooms from November

Telecom broadband will enable TiVo entertainment downloads with no impact on customers’ monthly data allowance

17 September 2009 - Telecom and Hybrid Television Services, the exclusive licensee of TiVo® products in Australia and New Zealand, today announced a partnership that will see TiVo delivering unmetered entertainment to NZ living rooms from November.
The deal will provide Telecom broadband customers with the ability to download movies and shows to their TV with no impact to their monthly broadband data allowance as well as access to all of the Freeview|HD® channels.

The TiVo media device allows viewers to pause and rewind live TV, record every episode in a series with the Season Pass feature, auto record favourite actors using the WishList search and provide a safe viewing environment for their children with TiVo KidZone.
Telecom broadband will also unmeter games and information services as well as the 14-day on-screen guide and software updates within the TiVo.
Alan Gourdie, CEO Telecom Retail: “TiVo represents a revolution in the way Kiwis watch television, this new entertainment service allows the freedom to watch what you want, when you want and enjoy top rated movies on the television without impacting your monthly broadband data allowance.
“We are delighted to add this world class entertainment device to New Zealand’s most popular broadband service; which already provides customers services such as Yahoo!Xtra Pro Mail, a comprehensive security suite and photo manager Flickr Pro all at no additional cost,” says Mr Gourdie.
Robbee Minicola, CEO of Hybrid TV: “The partnership between Hybrid TV and Telecom is an outstanding result for the consumer. We are very pleased to have New Zealand’s largest telecommunication provider support our efforts in supplying unmetered broadband entertainment to the TiVo media device.
“In addition to getting the best of free-to-air digital TV, Telecom customers will have access to broadband entertainment which they will only pay for what they view instead of paying monthly subscription fees.
“When we announced our plans to launch in NZ back in March of this year we were greeted with a high level of interest. We are confident that New Zealanders will enjoy the entertainment choices, convenience, and value we will provide just in time for Christmas shopping,” said Ms Minicola. 
At launch the TiVo Media Device plus the Wireless Adaptor will be sold as a bundle for $920.00 (incl. GST) from Telecom retail stores, customer service channels at 123 and online at www.telecom.co.nz/mytivo
Telecom will also offer a deferred payment option of 24 monthly payments of $30 plus an upfront initial payment of $200 (incl GST) which is placed on your Telecom phone bill. This payment option will only be available to Telecom Broadband customers.
