iiNet first to multicast IPTV over the NBN

Data transmission technology to deliver high quality video and IPTV services

iiNet has become the first Internet Service Provider certified to deliver multicast-based Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) services over the National Broadband Network (NBN).

NBN Multicast is a data transmission technology for delivering high quality video and IPTV services.

The company, along with TransACT, WestNet, Netspace, and Internode completed NBN Co's multicast certification process in November, which then allows them to deliver IPTV-based services, such as Fetch TV, as multicast is progressively phased in over the NBN.

iiNet chief product officer, Stephen Harley, said the successful multicast certification process demonstrates the iiNet Group's commitment to the NBN.

"The NBN Multicast service lets us deliver awesome, high quality video entertainment to our customers, such as our innovative Fetch TV service," Harley said.

As its first initiative, iiNet will take part in a multicast IPTV delivery trial planned by NBN Co at a Greenfields site in Rhodes, NSW. For this trial, it will use the Fetch TV service.

"We're looking forward to delivering IPTV services to even more of our NBN customers as it becomes available," Harley said.
