Ziggo to launch HBO on Demand

Dutch cabler Ziggo, the countrys largest operator, has clinched a deal with the premium pay-TV provider HBO to launch a branded S-VOD service. Starting later this year, Ziggo will offer HBO on Demand, featuring a selection of HBO mini series.

The operator offers its subscribers Warner TV on Demand as well as branded catch-up services from the public broadcasters and private channels RTL and SBS. Access to services is included in a monthly S-VOD subscription of 9.95 a month, payable on top of the basic analogue and digital subscription fee of 16.45.

For the moment, HBO on Demand will only feature mini series including The Sopranos, Rome, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, True Blood, The Encounter and many others. All series will only become available after the free-to-air broadcast rights have run out; the SBS channels and Fox Life broadcast many of the HBO series in The Netherlands.

The service is envisaged to appeal to people who otherwise would buy boxed DVD sets of their favourite series.

At the moment, more than half of Ziggos television homes take digital television; but most of these customers only have a zapper box. The interactive services were launched in April 2009 and the operator does not disclose how many iDTV customers it has.

According to Ziggo CTO Paul Hendriks, the cabler is looking into possibilities of using the CI Plus CAM to make interactive and on Demand services possible.
