iPrimus has signed an agreement with Hybrid Television Services to offer unmetered TiVo download to its customers.
This means that users will be able to download video content as well as services (like weather and games), software updates, and electronic program guide data without any impact to their monthly data allowance.
iPrimus General Manager, Marketing & Products, Andrew Sims said: “Our customers do not need to pay twice for a movie experience on a TiVo – now they can purchase a movie download on a TiVo media device confident that the movie size will not impact their monthly data allowance. This means our customers can use their broadband data allowance for other internet activities without their TiVo usage counting towards their plan’s allowance.”
From June, current iPrimus broadband customers will enjoy unmetered access to content and services on the TiVo device.
Robbee Minicola, CEO of Hybrid TV commented: “To have an internet service provider of the calibre of iPrimus join us in providing Australians with the freedom to download content and services into their TiVo without any penalty or impact on monthly download quotas is simply outstanding.”
“We know that the switch from analogue to digital TV has many people looking for the right investment to upgrade their old telly. With a TiVo media device delivering all of the Freeview channels in both standard and high definition as well as the ability to download movies and access to services and games – a TiVo becomes far more compelling than your average DVR or even pay TV,” concluded Minicola.
