Tiscali to Expand IPTV Footprint in Italy

Tiscali announced that its IPTV service is now available in nine citiees in Italy. It just added six cities (Bologna, Florence, Genoa, Naples, Palermo and Turin) in addition to the three cities that it launched in December 2007 (Cagliari, Milan and Rome). It can provide IPTV service to 4 million lines today and plans to be able to provide it to 9 million lines by the end of 2008.

Tiscali's IPTV service includes 48 hour time shifting, video on demand, and HD programming. It has content agreements with Disney and Sony.

Tiscali has not announced the number of IPTV subscribers that it serves either in Italy or in France. As usual, I assume that this is because the numbers are nothing to brag about.
