IPTV comes to Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s state-owned telecoms and energy company Intituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) has launched the country’s first managed IPTV service, called ‘kölbi hogar TV’ and available nationwide.

The service offers 87 linear channels, including 11 pay-per-view channels and seven in HD, from networks like Fox, History, Discovery Channel, Nat Geo, Destinos TV, Disney Junior, Nick JR and Sony.

Customers also get a video-on-demand library with around 1,000 titles, of which the majority (80%) are included for no extra cost.

ICE is offering new customers a 12-month contract for CRC 32.5 (US$ 0.06) per month as part of a launch offer.
