Vodafone TV service to launch in UK in Q1 2016Tuesday, November 10th, 2015
Vodafone has announced results for the six months ended 30 September 2015:
“In Europe, we have 11.7 million broadband customers and 9.2 million TV customers, with 47% of our European broadband customers taking a high speed service over fibre or cable.
During H1, we launched Vodafone One, our converged service in Spain combining mobile with the cable services of Ono, which we acquired in 2014. By September, nearly 800,000 customers had subscribed to the service. We also brought out our consumer broadband package in the UK, with TV to follow later in the 2016 financial year, and in November we launched Vodafone Red One in Germany, our fully integrated bundle combining mobile with high speed broadband on the Kabel Deutschland (‘KDG’) cable network.
In November, we launched Vodafone RedOne, our fully integrated fixed, mobile and TV service combining high speed mobile and cable.
After regional trials during the summer, we launched our consumer broadband service to 22 million premises across the UK (95% of BT’s fibre footprint) in October, with our new TV service to follow in Q4.
The integration of Ono is proceeding strongly, with the MVNO migrated to the Vodafone network seven months ahead of schedule and the very successful launch in May of Vodafone One, our fully integrated cable, mobile and TV service. At September 2015 we already have nearly 800,000 customers on Vodafone One. Including our joint fibre network build with Orange, we now reach 8 million premises with fibre.”
