According to reports in news website BusinessDay, quoting unnamed sources at SKY itself. The report names Vodafone, Orcon, Slingshot, Woosh, Xnet and Farmside as planning to offer the iSKY service without counting it as part of a customer's data quota.
TelstraClear and Telecom New Zealand are the notable absents in this agreement. The service will presumably be unveiled in November and go live before the end of the year.
Proposition and target audience
Sky will offer:
* Three live sports channels;
* Two live news channels and
* The ability to catch up on recently broadcasted content at zero-rate. This counts for almost all "basic" channels of Sky, including Prime.
First the service will be available to Sky Pay-TV customers who are subscribed to relevant channels. In a later stage it may be sold separately.
