Claro Puerto Rico launches IPTV in 37 towns

Peuerto Rican telco Claro has launched a managed IPTV service in 37 towns around the island, delivered over its new fibre broadband network that it started deploying last year.

The new IPTV service will be available on a standalone basis or as part of a triple-play bundle, with triple-play bundles starting at US$ 60 per month, according to local English-language news site News is my Business.

Channel packages range from US$ 20 to US$ 75 per month, with all-Spanish packages also available, and the service offers 50 high-definition channels at launch, with 32 more to be added in the coming months.

Claro’s new IPTV service also offers some advanced features such as full home DVR, a ‘mosaic’ feature that enables up to six channels to be displayed at once, and instant channel change – all features common to the Microsoft Mediaroom platform, although the equipment vendors involved are yet to be revealed.
