IPTV for Brasilia
October 1, 2007
Brazil’s third largest fixed line operator Brasil Telecom has launched the first commercial IPTV service in the country. The service, called Videon, will initially be available in the capital BrasÃlia. It plans to extend Videon to the main state capitals and cities where the company already has a presence. BrT will initially offer two types of package: a fixed monthly package with up to 500 hours of programs and a pay-per-view option. BrT was keen to launch IPTV as a way of adding TV to its portfolio of services, while the regulator continues to consider allowing telcos to offer broadcast TV.
