What’s new on the Freezone

With May behind us we can look back on what was a huge month for Freezone. We had a number of live streams – from the final of TopGeek 2.0 right through to launch of Kitty Cam. What started out as a temporary webcam for iiNet’s FedEx Day has turned into a raging success, one we’re proud to host on Freezone. May also saw the launch of the Freezone app for fetchtv subscribers, meaning you can bring the wonders of Freezone straight to your home television.

With June upon us, it’s time we had a look at some of the awesome events coming to screens near you:

  4. AP says:

    How about allowing Spotify on Freezone?

    • Adam O'grady says:

      While this is a cool idea, it might not be possible to implement. Spotify is unusual in that it utilises peer-to-peer traffic to get a lot of the information about upcoming tracks, which can’t be made Freezone like normal traffic between a client and a single server.


  5. Katherine says:

    Spot on Peter. Not everyone who reads the newsletter is an Gen X or Y or what ever. However, Movie & concert passes are of no use to many of us in regional WA. How about something we can actually use as prizes? A months access, a viop hand set, downloads and the like would be nice.
