Internode and Hybrid Television Services have struck a deal

Internode and Hybrid Television Services have struck a deal to offer unmetered TiVo content through Internode’s ADSL network, starting this week.

Customers of Internode can download TiVo’s electronic content without using any download quota. Existing customers of the Internet service provider that already own a TiVo will also receive the same offering.

Internode managing director, Simon Hackett, said the deal came about after periodic discussions with Hybrid Television Services.

“Each time we talked, it just seemed to make more sense to move in this direction,” he said. “Our respective offerings just seem to be a really good fit for each other.”

Internode has agreed to contribute to the upcoming TiVo-branded hardware and broadband bundle, providing the underlying Internet access. The bundle includes a TiVo media device, a TiVo wireless adaptor and an ADSL2+ wireless router. There will also be standalone packages for customers that already use TiVo.

While Internode’s collaboration with Hybrid Television Services is an open-ended agreement, Hacket expressed his interest in making this a permanent partnership.

Further unmetered content is in the works for later this year.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
