SelecTV set for November launch

The French push-VOD service SelecTV will launch this November on both satellite and DTT using Logiways’s Push-VoD product, VoDAccess.

Originally, the satellite DTH service was planned for a September launch, ahead of the terrestrial start, but apparently the operator has now chosen to simultaneously launch on satellite and DTT.

SelecTV will have two complimentary offers, Selection, a subscription on-demand serice offering a choice of series, documentaries, family, music and youth programming from a number of sources including the French Disney Channel, Game One and Eurosport; and A La Seance, a transactional VOD service with movies which will become available just four months after their theatrical release.

The CSA awarded the push-VOD licence to SelecTV at the end of last May. SelecTV is a subsidiary of TV Num, a pay-TV operator on the French DTT network.
