Tiscali takes IPTV across U.K.

Tiscali's broadband operation in the United Kingdom is taking its IPTV offering out of town. Tiscali TV, launched last March in London, will now be offered across the rest of the United Kingdom, with a goal of having 500,000 subscribers by year's end, and to be available to 10 million homes.

The basic service will initially be offered free to existing broadband subscribers with connections of at least 2 Mbps. Tiscali, based in Calgliari, Italy, with divisions throughout Europe, is reported to have around 1.5 million broadband subscribers in Great Britain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In an unrelated item, the folks at London media research firm, Screen Digest, say that IPTV is growing more slowly in the United Kingdom than in the rest of Western Europe. "There is currently only one nationally available IPTV service in the U.K.-BT Vision…," it notes. Tiscali clearly had that figured out.
