Mediazone's FAQ -- just in case

mediazone_faq

Be still my untrusting heart, but I do believe it might be a good idea to keep a record of the FAQ that I was reading when I decided to pay for an "all access" pass.

Also, keep in mind that the faq looked like the picture above -- leaving FAQ 3 invisible to the excited eye. I think it's pretty clear that FAQ 1 gives one a pretty clear set of expectations. Expectations that Mediazone will not fulfill.

1. What is an All Access Pass?
An All Access Pass allows you to watch every match from the 2006 Super 14, June Tours, Tri Nations, Currie Cup, and Air New Zealand Cup both LIVE and on-demand, whenever and wherever you want. Plus, it gives you unlimited access to the complete Rugby Channel Archive from 2005. An All Access Pass costs $129.99 is good for one year from date of purchase. You can also buy competition specific packages or individual matches on a pay-per-view basis.

2. Once I buy my All Access Pass, how do I watch the matches?
The main Rugby Channel page will list the current and previous week's schedule of matches. To access these games, click on the one you want to watch and you'll be taken to that individual game page. From the area for subscribers below the main picture, choose either the 'Live Stream' or the 'Download' button. You'll then be asked to sign in with your email address and password, and will be automatically directed to either the Windows Media Player or a download box. For matches not listed on the main page, click on the icon of the competition you're interested in on the left hand side of the site, then select the round in which the game was played, then click on the specific match. For 2005 fixtures, click on the Rugby Channel Archive button and follow the above procedure.

3. Is this available all over the world? What countries can I watch from?
