14 Jan 2015

Hungary’s dominant telecoms service provider by subscribers and revenue, Magyar Telekom (MTel), has overhauled its DTH, cable and IPTV offerings, simplifying its packages and adding new broadcast channels, including new high definition (HD) services. The operator, which is controlled by German powerhouse Deutsche Telekom, said the revamp follows negotiations with content providers and will see it now offering unified ‘mini-packages’ across all delivery platforms – satellite, cable and IPTV. DigitalTV.net says that going forward, subscribers can sign up to one of two packages: Nagyvilag (translates as Great World) includes 20 information and entertainment channels, including news services, documentary channels, music and foreign-language services; or Filmvilag (World of Films), which includes 18 channels with a focus on movies.
