Title: ReelTime Video on Demand
Post by: prl on August 15, 2008, 12:31:53 PM
In October 2007, an IceTV news item (http://www.icetv.com.au/news/?p=66) said that
Quote
IceTV & ReelTime have this week signed a content sharing agreement that will provide IceTV users with access to a range of ReelTime movie and television download titles, games and music content via IceTV’s two main websites

and that
Quote
we envisage that this unique ability and first to market feature will be made available to consumers in the near future

Since then, I don't think that there's been anything more from IceTV on the subject. Apparently the "near future" is more than nine months. ;)

When was the float to get more funding about to start, when was the Nein litigation starting?

 "IceTV Wins Court Case!!! (http://www.icetv.com.au/news/?p=44)" Thursday, August 9th, 2007
"
Nine appeals the court decision (http://www.icetv.com.au/news/?p=136)" Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

I'm not sure when IceTV found out that Nine was going to appeal.

The
float (http://www.smarthouse.com.au/Content_And_Downloads/IPTV/B6K3M3S6) was on 18 Apr 2006, well before the ReelTime announcement.

Edit: It seems the Nine legal action caused the float to be
abandoned (http://www.hydrapinion.com/index.php/play/2007/08/10/nine_gets_boned_by_icetv).

Still, I couldn't find any "ReelTime Video On Demand: Paused" articles.

IceTV was today granted special leave to appeal the recent decision made by the Full Court of the Federal Court to the High Court of Australia.

Go to the
News (http://www.icetv.com.au/news/) section of our website for any further information.

Reeltime Media became insolvent in late 2007 and hence there has been no more developments with this.

The great news however is that we are working with another online content provider to deliver content through the IceTV Interactive service.

We will make an announcement regarding this as soon as we are closer to finalising the development and have come to an agreement with the content provider.
