T-Mobile launching satellite TV in Czech Republic

26 Oct 2010

T-Mobile Czech Republic will launch a satellite TV service on 1 November, using the Skylink satellite platform on Astra satellites. ‘T-Mobile TV’ claims to offer better quality than analogue or DVB-T broadcasting, and is charging no monthly fee, although the standalone price for the satellite receiver, antenna and TV card is CZK5,999 (USD342), reports Telecompaper. However, T-Mobile cellular voice package customers can get the TV package at discounted prices, whilst those signing a 24-month contract can purchase the satellite receiver and antenna for CZK1.
