Czech firm nangu.TV has won a contract to provide its IPTV delivery platform to Polish broadband operator E-CHO, based in the town of Choszczno in the west of the country.
The IPTV service will include linear and video-on-demand services, and the installation at E-CHO also enables the ISP to resell IPTV services to other operators as a B2B model.
The platform was sold through nangu.TV’s Polish reseller Elmat, and E-CHO joins other nangu.TV customers in the region such as DSi, NETBOX, Telefonica O2, T-Systems, SmartComp and Slovanet.
According to recent research by Informa Telecoms & Media (publisher of IP&TV News), there were 171,000 subscribers to IPTV services in Poland by the end of 2011, with the majority served by Orange Polska.
The country’s cable and satellite operators still predominate however: pay DTH overtook cable as the leading television platform in Poland during 2009 and currently has around 40% of the market.
