Hi ariel

Sorry, but Jetstream doesn't provide cable TV.

Cable provides subscription TV services and internet is an additional service but the technology is different to jetstream which comes down your ordinary telephone wires. You have to live in a cabled area like Wellington to get cable TV.

People seem to get cable and DSL(jetstream) confused, as said above jetstream is a service that lives on top of your phone line, cable on the other hand is a service that is bought into your house on an entirely separate piece of coax cable that terminates in a small connecter similar to that used for a sky dish connector.

As far as i know, cable is only available to those of us in CHCH or Wellington who have the option of Telstra as a telecommunications provider.
