Greek telco OTE is defying the country’s economic crisis and going ahead with plans for a new pay TV offer via satellite in September. The Conn-X satellite TV offering will be cheaper than the current package from rival Nova, currently available on Eutelsat’s Hot Bird satellite position at 13° East. The OTE Conn-X bouquet will broadcast via Eutelsat’s 9° East position, and is expected to be priced at less than €20 a month.
OTE currently has about 55,000 IPTV subscribers across Greece. The new platform will target households outside the reach of its IPTV network.
