  3. Yet another pay TV thing. Saw an add last night on the teev. But your point
    appears valid. :)

  5. Its Terrestrial ONLY so might not be so good for Sky users.

  6. Most other counties have controls on the Sky monopoly but NZ is not one
    of them..

    Sky runs TVNZ..

    The Igloo thing is 51% own by Sky.

    And no good for people that cant get terrestrial Freeview.

    Plus you need a no Cap broadband Internet connection, as from what I
    can see no none metered option available

    Rentals are valid for a period of 48 hours after purchase.

    It seems that you have to have a credit card to use any part of this

  8. I suspect so. I always try to read what people mean rather than what they
    types. I gave up reading anything roger types a while back however because
    it became too hard to work that out. :)
