Vodafone Germany plans new TV service

Vodafone Germany plans to launch a new TV service for its fixed broadband customers later this year, CEO Fritz Joussen told the newspaper FAZ. He said the service will rely on a mix of satellite, cable and IPTV. The service will be "completely different" to what Deutsche Telekom offers, and overcome the disadvantages of IPTV, he added.

Joussen said the company has been focusing more investment on its mobile activities, which have twice the margin of the fixed-line activities. He blamed the low fixed margins on the regulatory structure, which makes it difficult to earn money on products leased from the incumbent operator. However, fixed remains a necessity in order to have converged service offerings, he said. For mobile broadband, the company is working on extending services to rural areas, in the hopes of getting a first mover advantage.

Joussen also confirmed plans to roll out LTE over the next three years, saying the company will upgrade existing base stations for the service, first rolling out in 'white spot' areas and then in cities. The recently acquired 800MHz spectrum is expected to prove useful in cities, to increase indoor coverage.
