    Hmmmn, completely inexplicable. I have cast both NEON and FANPASS and the service was flawless. I just recently used FANPASS to stream the Joshua v Ruiz fight and it was great.

    Oh well, I guess Sky won't be looking forward to your custom in the future

    SKY accelerates focus on streaming services

    https://www.nzx.com/announcements/336549

    There was an article in the Herald the other day (behind paywall) indicating a lot of change at SKY, but questioning if it was too late.

    Initially I thought the Cisco Infinite Video Platform and 'Puck' were good ideas. However, on reflection - I did start to think they would be best suited saving their money to upgrade their NEON and FANPASS apps. Let people bring their own devices - I mean, it has worked wonderfully for Netflix.

    Other companies, like Apple, are providing set top box systems that will ultimately allow the aggregation of content from different platforms. Sky would be better to enhance NEON, and collaborate with Apple to ensure NEON behaves as a 'Channel' on AppleTV. That way customers are more likely to have premium Sky content surfaced to them alongside content from Netflix, Lightbox, Apple etc etc...

    God only knows how much money has already been spent on the new set top boxes though! I am sure it is a scary number.

    According to Stuff, the new Sport App will be brand new...and run in conjunction with FANPASS...

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/ind...of-puck-device

    Bizarre if that is true. I would have thought they would just have one updated sport streaming app that has an On Demand focus.

    I emailed Sky for clarification. If they don't reply I guess we will just have to wait until August to see how it all plays out.

    LOL. Anyone who is not completely bearish on Sky TV MUST be an employee huh?


    Sky came back with: "We’re not getting into details on this yet but will make a further announcement within the next few weeks"

    So will have to wait and see, but I hope they end up with just one Sport App that has more content and flexible plans.

    Not sure if "paranoid" is entirely fair, but clearly Sky are going to have to pony up more cash to retain key sporting rights.

    What do you guys think the changes to NEON and FANPASS are likely to include?

    Maybe they should offer 50% subscriptions to shareholders.
    That would get my attention !

    I would expect most shareholders are going to be subscribers anyway so you probably have a better chance that they put your prices up! all to help the companies bottom line of course

    Beyond the World Cup: Spark Sport boss confirms ambition to tackle Sky head-on

    Sobering sort of headline for Sky shareholders.

    With ABs, Sky might as well start winding down and call it quits as a mass market player.

    Spark will surely lose a lot of money on this. Sky TV will pay big $$ to keep their key rights and they the subscribers to do it
