Belgian cable operator Telenet is launching its CI+ product on June 24 called ‘TV with a card’.
Subscribers can buy the module for a one-time fee of €69 and no additional monthly costs. Viewers who opt for CI+ will receive 75 channels in the basic subscription package. In addition, viewers can upgrade with premium channels such as Prime or Sporting Telenet.
The operator warns it customers that no interactive service are possible when using CI+: “the Digicorder is still the ideal device for customers who require more advanced functions, such as using the TV library and the ability to record programmes.”
“We believe it is important to match our television product to the customer’s wishes. For example, we recently launched our innovative Yelo TV product for our digital TV customers,” said Inge Smidts, SVP residential marketing in a statement.
“With ‘TV with a card’, we cater for cable television customers for whom the many digital TV functionalities are a threshold. Moreover, ‘TV with a card’ is a great option for those customers who have an extra TV set, for example in the bedroom, and would like to watch more channels at an advantageous cost. Customers already let us know earlier that they would like to make use of the CI+ technology in their TV set. We are responding to this customer need with ‘TV with a card’.”
