Greek telco OTE has reached the milestone of 100,000 subscribers for its pay-TV service ‘OTE TV’, launched in February 2009 via IPTV and since expanded to satellite delivery last year.
Over the past 12 months, OTE has made a number of enhancements to its service, including adding new channels, HD content and service features, and now offers over 55 linear channels (including thematic and free-to-air) for €14.90 per month.
“Television is a main pillar of OTE’s commercial strategy,” said Zacharias Piperidis, COO of OTE Group.
“The dynamic growth and increasing subscriber base of OTE TV clearly demonstrates that the service is steadily gaining ground in the Greek market. In addition, it confirms that, despite the recession, pay-TV still has considerable room for growth in our country.”
OTE adds that it plans to add new film and sports channels to its service “soon”, as well as new (unspecified) services.
