Internode To Offer Cap-Free Access To Tivo

InternodeTivo.jpgThe biggest roadblock to legal movie and TV downloads remains the huge amounts of bandwidth they consume, which can punch a huge hole in your monthly download cap (even without taking HD into consideration). The ideal solution would be cap-free ISP accounts, but since that’s never going to happen deals between ISPs and content providers are the next best thing. Lara Sinclair at The Australian reports that Seven and Internode have done a deal which will see Tivo downloads excluded from the total for customers who sign up for a new Internode/Tivo bundle. No word yet on whether Internode’s existing customers will also get similar benefits if they purchase a Tivo, but that would seem a likely outcome. The nature of the deal (which apparently kicks off in late March) suggests other ISPs aren’t likely to get a bite at the Tivo cherry. But there are other cap-free content options. If you favour iTunes for movies, iiNet remains your best bet, while there are now plenty of cap-free choices for the ABC’s iView, and BigPond Movies for Telstra customers.


  • All Internode ADSL and FTTH customers will definitely enjoy the same unmetered download benefits. The special TiVo account is designed to be sold with a TiVo and should suit most users who are new to broadband or need a faster service. They will be able to upgrade to higher download plans if they need one.
