Sky Digital Start Up With Telecom

Back By Popular Demand - Sky Digital Start Up With Telecom

Telecom residential customers can once again sign up for a home phone and SKY digital package that can be billed directly to their residential phone bill.

Telecom Head of Consumer Marketing Victoria Crone says Sky Digital Start Up with Telecom's TVLine offer is the perfect communications and entertainment package.

"Last time we offered this to our customers it was immensely popular," she said.

"We're expecting a similar demand this time.

"With TVLine, Telecom customers can get their home line rental and basic SKY Digital costs packaged into one price and billed directly to their residential account.

"SKY will bill separately for SKYWatch, Premium Channels and for any Pay Per View channels," Ms Crone said.

"We're really excited about being able to offer customers the chance to get a Sky package through Telecom. We're on a journey that's increasingly bringing together all our customers' telecommunications, entertainment and information needs.

"We're already seeing that with more and more Xtra services available on 027. For the longer term transmitting Sky content over our broadband network is just one of the many services we're hoping to offer.

"We're working on developing that exciting new product to take customers into the future," Ms Crone said.
