4G wireless provider, vividwireless, has signed an agreement with Hybrid TV to deliver the company’s on-demand TV shows, movies and music to its customers on an unmetered basis.
The deal will allow vividwireless’ subscriber base to access Caspa content for their TiVo devices without impacting their monthly download quotas. Hybrid TV is the exclusive licensee of TiVo products in A/NZ and launched the proprietary Caspa service last year.
The announcement comes just over a month after vividwireless switched on Australia’s first 4G service in Perth, Western Australia. The network was built using LTE and WiMax hardware from China-based vendor, Huawei, late last year by Unwired. Unwired, vividwireless and ubowireless were merged together earlier this year.
The network will eventually be expanded across five Australian capital cities with a focus around major universities, the company said.
In a statement, vividwireless CEO, Martin Mercer, said he was pleased to be able to offer subscribers a wide range of broadband content unmetered. Both Hybrid and vividwireless are wholly owned the Seven Network.
Other ISPs that have already begun providing Caspa on-demand broadband content in a similar fashion include Internode, Pirmus, iINet, Apex Internet and Adam Internet.
