Australian Internet service provider iiNet yesterday announced a partnership with FetchTV to deliver digital TV over broadband.
Powered by an ADSL2+ broadband connection, the partnership will allow iiNet customers to access free-to-air digital television channels, a range of subscription channels, a personal video recorder (PVR), and an electronic program guide (EPG). A video on demand service is also available with a basic subscription.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but the service is expected to be much cheaper than Australia's main pay TV provider, Foxtel.
Trials of the service are set to begin in upcoming months, with the FetchTV service available to customers shortly after.
