Further details have emerged of Magyar Telekom’s new T-Home branded DTH service. Amos 3 (4 degrees West) is being used to distribute the MPEG-4/DVB-S2 service that will use just three transponders to distribute a package containing close to 70 channels. T-Home has adopted Conax conditional access.
Four HD channels are available; HBO, History, National Geographic Channel and History. SD channels include Jetix, JimJam, Minimax, Sport Klub, Hallmark, Viva, Boomerang, CNN and Travel Channel. The three national broadcasters M1, M2 and Duna TV are also included.
The basic package of 14 channels costs HUF1,490 (€5.55) per month, while the 49-channel Family Package is priced at HUF2,990 per month. Taking advantage of its triple play proposition of internet, telephony and TV, the Deutsche Telekom-owned company is offering significant discounts for customers taking two or more services.
The package will compete with Digi TV, UPC Direct and Hello HD.
