State-run Indian telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) says it will launch a commercial IPTV service in January 2007. The service will initially be available to broadband subscribers in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore. The telco began piloting IPTV in the city of Pune on the country’s Independence Day on 15 August. Pricing for the service has yet to be revealed. BSNL’s sister company MTNL launched the country’s first commercial IPTV services in Delhi and Mumbai this month.
