“Television is a main pillar of OTE’s commercial strategy,” said OTE Group COO, Zacharias Piperidis. “The dynamic growth and increasing subscriber base of OTE TV clearly demonstrates that the service is steadily gaining ground in the Greek market. In addition, it confirms that, despite recession, pay-TV still has considerable room for growth in our country.”
Last year the IPTV platform was joined by a sister satellite service broadcast from Eutelsat’s Eurobird 9A at 9 degrees East.
The OTE TV subscription service currently offers more than 55 thematic channels and free-to-air channels including HD. Additional movie and sports channels are slated for launch.
