French cable operator Numéricable is taking advantage of its free digital terrestrial offer to hook up homes to more of its services. The cabler is now rolling out free-to-view access to all DVB-T channels on its network.
People can watch these channels with a DVB-T tuner when connecting to cable without the need for a subscription to any other service. But since these homes are connected to cable, Numéricable is now marketing what we can call “DTT Play”. At €19.90 a month, people will get broadband internet access with speeds up to 30 Mbps and unlimited fixed line calling. For €24.90, they can get speeds up to 100 Mbps.
The operator is also offering an extended package. For €29.90 monthly, people will receive the Prima bouquet with 120 TV channels plus a Canal+ Week-end subscription.
