Telecom Italia to Expand IPTV in Germany

Telecom Italia’s subsidiary in Germany, HanseNet, plans to offer its Alice homeTV IPTV package in 150 cities by the end of 2007. This will provide coverage of 10 million households.

Its IPTV service will be offered in Bremen, Leipzig, Dresden, Stuttgart and the Ruhr region. This services is currently available in Hamburg, Lubeck and parts of federal state Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. It includes approximatesly 60 free to air channels and 40 pay channels plus video-on-demand with about 1,200 titles.

IPTV is becoming a standard part of a broadband service offering in Germany as it has in France. This will certainly increase the amount of competition in this market.
