Vodafone Germany has expanded the video-on-demand library of its hybrid TV service ‘Vodafone TV’ and now offers films from all six of the major Hollywood studios: Walt Disney, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures and NBC Universal.
Also included in its VOD lineup are titles from European producers and distributors including StudioCanal, Constantin, Tobis and Universum.
Current highlights of its VOD library include “The Hunger Games” and “American Pie: Reunion”, and the operator is also looking to add Turkish films featuring the original audio this autumn.
Vodafone Germany’s TV service uses hybrid set-top boxes capable of receiving IPTV, satellite and cable signals, and was launched in February 2011, offering 50 channels in the basic package, including all of the country’s free-to-air channels and those operated by the groups RTL and ProSiebenSat.1.
The Vodafone TV Center box comes with a 320 GB hard drive. A triple-play package including 16 Mbps DSL broadband, unlimited calls to fixed-lines in Germany and the basic TV package, costs €39.95 per month for the first year.
Although there haven’t been any official subscriber figures released recently, the service had reached 25,000 customers by the end of June 2011, and is believed to have already passed 100,000.
