ATHENS — OTE Group (Hellenic Telecommunications Organization SA) [ASE: HTO, NYSE: OTE] announces the soft launch, for a testing period, of conn-x TV (IPTV) to a limited number of existing clients at the following areas: Attiki, Thessaloniki, Patras, Larisa and Herakleion, Crete. The duration of conn-x TV’s soft launch is expected to be around 3 months. Conn-x TV is part of OTE’ s strategy regarding the expansion of broadband internet services.

Through their fixed line broadband connection, consumers that take up conn-x TV will be able to enjoy digital television services. In particular, they can enjoy:

  • TV channels with a digital signal
  • video on demand services: this gives them the opportunity to “rent” and watch, at their preferred time, movies, TV series, video-clips, documentaries etc., depending on their interests and preferences.

Following the completion of the soft launch phase, OTE intends to fully launch the service at competitive prices, offering even greater value to users.
