Germany : DEUTSCHE Telekom to set up OTT [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) German telco Deutsche Telekom is planning a two-branched over-the-top content delivery effort.

DT declared the multiscreen option for Entertain IPTV customers who pay an addition $7 per month for 40 channels made available to PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones and other IP-connected devices. Now, a Broadcast Engineering story said, the carrier is "thought to be establishing a promotional offer to existing subscribers over the Christmas period." DT is working hard to gather the content, comprising classic German and Austrian movies made available via a VOD platform, and then developing a low-cost standalone OTT service that it hopes to upsell to bring consumers into its full Entertain IPTV service.

However, DT is also going to continue using VDSL technology to deliver this package of IP services, even though the VDSL will be supercharged vectoring technology that can reach speeds up to 100 Mbps.

Nearly, 35% of the country's households--can receive the IPTV package and approx 12.4 million DSL customers.
