Vodafone has launched a VOD service in Germany, offering movies and TV series for viewing on a PC or mobile phone. Called the Vodafone Videotheque, the new portal offers TV episodes from €0.99 each and feature length movies for €1.99.
The service is available from the Vodafone Live portal. Each download can be viewed as many times as the user likes during a 24-hour “rental” period, on the mobile phone or PC. On the portal, there are also free-to-view items available paid for by advertising. A selected number of titles can also be downloaded to own.
The service uses Microsoft Silverlight and Window Media Player version 10 or higher.
