The Australian is reporting that Fetch TV is contemplating an NBN deal that would see it become a network backhaul operator.

The move would allow the IPTV service to create a multicast system that would let its partners deliver the service in a more competitive fashion.

Essentially, the multicast would allow the pay-TV service to be streamed just once to all points of interconnect (PoI) on the network, reducing the network-related costs. NBN retailers would then be able to grab the service from those points and send it on to residences.
