But the key point is offering a compelling consumer proposition - not just pricing but the packaging of what you offer. If and when we offer a download service we'd want it to be different from the current model because it's not driving sufficient volumes. Streaming is a gap in the market that had not been filled, and we were able to fill that.

We'd want to do it as a real business, not just as an advertising differentiator for our 3G service. Download does have its merits - you can take it with you overseas, whereas with Moov technically we need to geo-block its availability for you to access it overseas.
