bbTV adds video-on-demand service Anyplex

IPTV service bbTV has added video-on-demand service Anyplex to its offerings, charging $3 for one movie per month. The Hong Kong Broadband Network, which is a subsidiary of City Telecom, says the Anyplex service offers users an earlier release window on movies than competitors.

Hong Kong Broadband Network has more than 1 million subscribers for its fiber-based broadband services, including 157,000 IPTV customers. In July, it announced symmetric 1Gbps residential service for what amounts to $26 a month, saying tremendous adoption of hi-def and interactive multimedia services, including IPTV, has increased the demand for more bandwidth exponentially. Hong Kong's residential broadband penetration is above 81 percent.
