Vodafone Plans UK TV Next Year

Just one week after UK mobile operator EE launched its own EE TV service (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 44), rival Vodafone has announced plans to introduce a service next year. The company will use its fixed-line assets to deliver the service with “a VDSL-like speed”, said European CEO Philipp Humm. Coverage is said to be slightly more than 50% of UK homes. Vodafone already offers TV services in five other markets.
