Telecom Italia and Sky to launch pay-TV service in April

24 Feb 2015

Telecom Italia (TI) has confirmed that its partnership with pay-TV provider Sky Italy will go live in April, meaning TI’s high speed internet subscribers will be able to access Sky programming via a new set-top box. The two firms first announced their revenue-sharing partnership in April last year, with the tie-up aimed at attracting more pay-TV users; a report from Digital TV Europe suggests that only around 25% of households in Italy subscribe to pay-TV services, compared to between 50% and 60% in the UK and France.
