Vodafone next to partner with SKY

29 Sep 2010

“Customers will not have to worry about how much of their fixed-line broadband bundle they are using, as iSKY traffic will not be counted towards their plan,” Vodafone said today in a statement.

Yesterday Orcon said it will support SKY’s online TV service, but didn’t reveal pricing plans.

Vodafone’s GM of Total Communications, Justin Caswell, said, “In 2006 Vodafone brought SKY Mobile TV to the mobile, in 2009 we brought FREE MY SKY HDi upgrades to our Ideal and Ultimate broadband customers.

"Now, with iSKY, customers have the freedom to choose how they want to consume media, with the added bonus of data not being counted against their fixed-line broadband data allowance at home”.

iSKY will be available to all Vodafone residential broadband customers “later this year”.
