MTNL to increase IPTV channels to 72 by February end

MTNL plans to increase the number of channels on IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) to 72 by the month-end in Delhi. The other competitor, Reliance IPTV, is set to enter the IPTV market in the last quarter of this year to give competition to MTNL IPTV. Reliance Communications is planning to launch its IPTV channels from October in at least 10 cities across the country.

MTNL launched its IPTV service in Mumbai and Delhi two months ago.

AK Arora, Executive Director, MTNL, said, “ In Delhi only 21 channels are available as of now. But we will increase the number to 72 by February-end. In Mumbai we are offering 100 channels on IPTV.”

To avail oneself of IPTV service, consumers need to have an MTNL broadband connection. Television channels are encoded in IP format and delivered to the television set through a set-top box.

IPTV offers several advantages over cable and satellite TV technologies. Along with airing channels, the service allows for time-shifted TV, which means consumers can watch programmes up to a week old.
