Internode kicks off FetchTV trial

Internode has kicked off its FetchTV service, inviting customers who had expressed interest in its early adopter programme to sign up.

 

Customers taking ADSL2+ services on Internode DSLAMs and close enough to the exchange to get at least 4.5Mbps downstream can apply for the service at a reduced set up fee of $49 ($99 when the full commercial service launches) and pay the standard monthly fee of $29.95 without having to commit to a 24 month contract.

At the end of the trial they will have the option to either cancel the service and return the set-top box or sign on to a contract of 24 months from the date they first took the services.

During the trial Internode will support only a limited number of ADSL broadband modem routers: others may work, but users will have to configure these themselves.

When it launches the commercial service, Internode is planning to offer the full FetchTV service to customers with adequate connections and those with slower connections a lite service consisting of a subset of the programming at a lower cost.

In the first phase of the trial it is inviting applications from those able to take the full service and says "a little later, we'll open up the Early Adopter program further, by inviting signups for the fetchtv 'lite' service." It has given no indication of when it plans to launch the full commercial service.

Internode announced plans to offer FetchTV in April and announced plans for the early adopter scheme in August. iiNet was the first ISP in Australia to launch a full commercial FetchTV service, in July. Adam Internet last week became the third ISP to commit to offer the service.
