Broadband TV News notes that Orange ended the first half of this year with 66,000 digital TV subscribers in Slovakia.
In his comments on the company’s results, published last month, Orange Slovensko’s CEO Pavol Lancaric said: “Because we want to be a full-fledged convergence player for all our customers, the development of our television, whether in terms of platform expansion or content enhancement, is key to us and fits into our converging strategy. That is why we are currently focusing on further improving our TV services, both in terms of availability and content. One without the other has no meaning”.
He added: “We have strengthened our position in the area of TV content, as we will exclusively broadcast the Champions League’s football league with at least the three closest seasons in Slovakia along with other exclusive sports content on the new Sport Sport sports channel. At the same time, we are preparing to launch satellite TV and other innovative ways of distributing TV content”.
