IceTv in Voluntary Administarion
« on: October 07, 2015, 05:58:18 PM »
Just received an email to advise that IceTV have been placed in voluntary administration.

Read it an weep those who, like me, haven't yet received there SKIPPA.

Disastrous!

Yep, just got that one myself. Pretty piss poor effort considering this:

"Dear SKIPPAź Community,

We're pleased to confirm that our backlog of SKIPPAź orders has finally been cleared. Australia Post will be sending tracking numbers on Tuesday due to the long weekend in New South Wales.

We've had some unexpected delays, both in the factory and with the current strike at Customs. But we have plenty of supply now in our warehouse to fulfill every order."

Just another in the long line of lies we've been fed. Not happy at all.

I knew this was a fucking scam.
Hope the people in charge of this company get the rightful jail sentence they deserve.

And I assume that those who have received a unit now have nothing but a basic DVR.
And maybe not even that. Does the unit work without an ICE subscription?

IT wasn't a scam, I have a Skippa.

They do exist...

Clearly however mismanagement is the issue, and it looks likely that they have obviously traded whilst insolvent...

Totally appalling situation I must say...

No it doesnt...

Only works with ICE EPG - Not FTA EPG

So its a boat anchor even for those that do have one.

Just b/c you have your skippa doesn't mean it wasn't a scam, they could have decided to keep selling them and they knew they didn't have the units :( I knew there was something wrong when we were barred from writing on their facebook page

Bugger.

Ordered/paid 2 weeks ago for the whole shabang SKIPPA plus lifetime IceTV. $600 smackers.

If someone could clarify. SKIPPA is in admin only? Or is it SKIPPA and IceTV?

Also, could someone repost in a more legible form the contact details for the administrator?

I got the email, but my version does not have the 2nd part as captured in previous post

The barely legible Subject line of the letter says "ICETV PTY LIMITED".

I was trying to be optimistic, not having received  my Skippa but looks like it's another Aussie venture that can't compete with the big boys...what's the chance that An Aussie firm puts in a rescue bid...come on Aussie come on...

IceTV and therefore Skippa as well.

Also, could someone repost in a more legible form the contact details for the administrator?
