Autumn launch for Netia IPTV in Poland

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Netia SA (WSE: NET) and TVN Group’s ‘n’, Poland’s HDTV platform from the ITI Group (Luxembourg: ITIH), are running a pilot project for IPTV services in the cities of Warsaw and Wrocław. The commercial launch, currently planned for this autumn following successful pilot project results, is to include the full package of platform ‘n’ programs, including HD channels as well as new services and functionalities offered by IPTV and will be available as 1play, 2play or 3play offerings with Netia’s voice and Internet services.

The cooperation with ‘n’ is intended to split the costs and risks of investing in IPTV services, bring top quality content and an additional sales channel to Netia, while giving telewizja ‘n’ access to households who would not normally purchase a satellite-based TV service.

The terms and conditions of business case were agreed and currently the parties are working on finalizing the commercial terms to facilitate roll-out of services.
