20 Jan 2016 | 02.51 pm

Vodafone has unveiled Vodafone TV, offering TV services for the first time in Ireland.

Vodafone TV is a premium service available from €40 per month to all new and existing Vodafone Home (broadband) customers.

Vodafone TV is delivered through IPTV, i.e. via high-speed broadband, and home broadband customers need a connection speed of at least 40MB per second. The company is advising customers to call into any of Vodafone retail stores to check line speeds for Vodafone TV.

Vodafone TV is being offered to customers with Simply Broadband, Home Essentials and Home Unlimited price plans, via a new 18 month contract for broadband services for €40 per month for the first six months.

The Vodafone Basic TV package provides a minimum of 55 TV channels, with the add-on of Netflix or Sports (BT and Setanta Sports), with unlimited broadband and landline calls included for €40 for six months, standard price €70 per month thereafter.

Vodafone TV Plus package includes all Basic TV elements with additional channels across kids, comedy, Eurosport, increased music options plus access to additional documentary channels, with two add-ons included (Netflix or Sports or Multi-Room), alongside unlimited broadband and calls for €40 per month for six months, standard price €80per month thereafter.

Additional add-on packages for Sky Sports and Sky Movies are also available.

TV Anywhere

Vodafone has also launched a new TV Anywhere app where mobile customers can watch their favourite shows while out and about.  This service is included in the price of the customer’s Vodafone TV package.

Ciaran Barrett, Head of Consumer Fixed, Vodafone Ireland, commented: “This is a significant move for Vodafone in the Irish market, offering a full TV service to our customers for the first time. Vodafone TV customers can build their own packages to suit their household needs, and enjoy unique features such as Restart TV and Netflix at the touch of a button.”
