PT prepares for satellite TV

2 Apr 2008

Portugal Telecom (PT) is preparing to launch satellite television services to the mass market to complement its existing IPTV offering which uses upgraded ADSL connections to offer TV content. Local newspaper Jornal de Negocios says that PT will launch satellite TV under the Meo brand and will use the same platform as its former cable TV division, Zon Multimedia, as this will allow end users to keep the same satellite dish and only switch their set-top box.
