From David Del Valle in Madrid

Telefónica’s IPTV platform Movistar Plus is offering free iPlus set-top-boxes in an attempt to boost subscriptions to the pay-TV platform by satellite, which currently has 800,000 subscribers (versus 3.7 million via IP).

The device will allow new and current subscribers to have access to HD channels, VoD and online box office content.

Recording services are not included in this promotion. To record TV content, the subscriber will have to pay an additional €5.60 enabling them to – for example – schedule all episodes of a TV series to be recorded through the Internet.
