Maltacom is to extend the offer of a free set-top box to its telephony customers after the telco added 15,000 subscribers to its IPTV service. The offer will now run through until June 30.
Maltacom entered the digital TV market after it acquired rival Multiplus in February. The company has subsequently undertaken a major market research exercise and is preparing to upgrade its technical capabilities that will allow it to extend the IPTV service to the whole of the island.
Once they have the set-top box installed, subscribers can pay a monthly Lm1 (E 0.43) for a basic package of 15 channels. It is also possible to upgrade to Silver and Gold tiers at Lm5 (E 2.15) and Lm9 (E 3.90) a month respectively.
