The Deutsche Telekom-backed company Ya.com has launched a new IPTV service in Spain. Employing the Microsoft IPTV Edition software platform favoured by almost all other Deutsche Telekom operations in Europe, Ya.com TV offers subscribers a basic package of 24 TV channels that will in due course be expanded to include TDT (DTT) services. Reception is possible through a decoder with an 80GB hard disk and a double TDT synthesiser. Ya.com YTV is being made available as part of a triple play offer that includes a 20Mbps ADSL connection and costs €39.95 a month. IPTV services are already provided in Spain by the incumbent telco Telefónica (Imagenio TV) and alternative carrier Jazztel (Jazztelia TV).
