The service will deliver 58 channels, along with PVR functionality, HDTV, video on demand, and an electronic program guide.
"TransACT has designed its new TransTV platform so it is ready to deploy across the National Broadband Network (NBN). This IPTV upgrade, together with the rollout of our FTTP/GPON network to thousands of greenfields residences and the upgrade to VDSL2 across many other parts of the ACT, is exciting for TransACT and our customers," said acting CEO Gordon Dunsford.
"This agreement also means these customers will not only have access to the latest in IPTV features and functions, but will also have the capability to get the broadband speeds today with TransACT that the NBN promises to deliver to the rest of Australia in eight years time," he added.
You can't help wondering whether TransACT has plans to reach customers around the country once the NBN comes into existence, or whether its content contracts limit service to the existing geographical area.
