About Freezone

What is Freezone?

The Freezone offers a range of video and radio content for iiNet, Westnet, Netspace, Internode and Adam Internet customers to enjoy without taking a hit to their monthly quota. Everything from movies, music, sports and gaming content is available along with several live streamed events throughout the year.

Better still, if you do max out your quota and become shaped, downloads from the Freezone will still be accessed at full speed. All iiNet broadband and Naked DSL accounts include access to the Freezone. (excludes mobile broadband, satellite and Adam Internet broadband)

Freezone is unmetered for Internode ADSL and Fibre to the Home broadband customers and Adam Internet ADSL, VDSL2, NBN and WiMAX broadband customers.

What's not in the Freezone?

While browsing, you'll need to be careful about clicking links that could take you out of the Freezone. Once you've ventured into non-Freezone territory, data will be counted towards your monthly download quota.

Traffic from Freezone content can also became metered if you alter the DNS settings on your computer. We recommend using the automatic settings assigned by our servers to ensure this doesn't happen.

While the actual download of data isn't counted towards your monthly quota, some sites may require you to pay for content you download. For example, downloading music from iTunes Australia won't count towards your quota*, but will still have to pay for the actual product.

Lastly, uploads to iTunes Australia are not counted as Freezone traffic and will be counted towards your quota.

Radio Stations

What's the difference between playing a radio station and downloading the m3u/pls file?

When you choose to play the radio station, it will play inside the Freezone player. This means you will hear the music for as long as your browser is open.

When you choose to download the m3u or pls file of a radio station, your browser will ask you to open or save the file to your computer. You can then use your preferred media player to open the file and listen to the radio stream. This means the radio station will keep playing even after you close your browser.

Which media player can I use for streaming radio stations?

You can use most mainstream media players to play our radio station streams including VLC, Windows Media Player, iTunes and RealPlayer.

Which web browser can I use to play radio stations in-browser?

For Windows, we recommend Chrome, Firefox or IE9 with the latest version of Adobe Flash. On the Mac, we recommend Safari and the latest version of Flash.

Your browser must have Javascript and cookies enabled for the radio stations to work properly.
