National fixed line PTO Ghana Telecom (GT) plans to launch a commercial internet protocol television (IPTV) service next month, according to GT Broadband Manager Mr Johnny Nettey. The new service will be available as part of the telco’s Broadband4U portfolio of services and will enable subscribers to sign up to a bouquet of programmes including sports, entertainment, movies, fashion shows, local and foreign news, children’s channels and FM radio channels. Mr Nettey said GT has signed up around 14,000 Broadband4U subscribers and aims to increase this to 18,000 by the end of 2008. The ADSL-based service, which was launched in August 2004, is currently available in every regional capital and some district capitals.
