Foxtel have roll out IPTV service.




The On-Demand IPTV service enables customers to download movies and TV shows via their internet connection.


The new services goes hand in hand with Foxtel's iQ2 On Demand service - and now offers hundreds of extra movies and up to a thousand TV shows.


TV shows are available for AU$2.95 each and users can download entire series of shows like Mad Men, Summer Heights High and Australia's Next Top Model.


Movies are also available, in the seperate "Movie Library On Demand" for AU$3.95 each.


All downloadable content is in standard definition and counts toward your download quota with your ISP - Bigpond users will receive unmetered usage.


If you have Foxtel iQ2 you will need to connect an Ethernet cable to the back of your device, make sure you have the update or do it yourself, and ring Foxtel on 131 999 to activate it. Users of the upgraded iQ with Ethernet will be enabled in December 2010.


This is the first time Foxtel has enabled usage of internet content, and last year Foxtel's Patrick Delany explained that the company's iQ2Go backup service would go live this year. But no word yet as to whether this is still in development.
