Vodafone Deutschland wants to transform the Horizon cable receivers of its customers in the former Unitymedia coverage area in federal states North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse and Baden-Württemberg into GigaTV boxes via a software update.
Following the sale of cable operator Unitymedia to Vodafone two years ago, Liberty Global is set to return to the German market.
Liberty Global has agreed to sell 100% of its operations in Poland to Iliad’s Polish subsidiary Play for PLN7 billion (€1.52 billion).
Vodafone is now offering the GigaTV Cable Box 2 as the standard TV reception device across its whole footprint in Germany, replacing Liberty Global’s Horizon box in the three federal states previously served by Unitymedia.
Nearly three million Liberty Global customers in Poland and the Netherlands are to receive an upgrade to new Intelligent WiFi services.
Liberty Global has revealed it recently received a non-binding offer from Iliad to buy 100% of its Polish operation UPC Polska for PL7.3 billion (€1.6 billion).
Details have emerged of how the takeover of UPC by Vodafone has impacted the latter’s performance in Romania.
