In a move that we're sure is strictly for the
children, Vodafone New Zealand has proposed a voluntary ban, supported by fellow carrier Telecom, on streaming
"restricted" content to cellphones until after a certain time. Under Vodafone's proposal, shows that have
appeared on over-the-air TV, but that could still contain sex, nudity, violence, and cussing, would only be available
for streaming after a so-called "watershed" time. In exchange for this generosity, Vodafone claims that it
would be absolved of the need to require age verification for the content in question. It seems that everyone wins
here: Vodafone gets more customers through its lax policy, and New Zealand children know exactly when the racy
programming starts on their phones.
