Portugal Telecom’s Meo Satellite pay-TV division has updated its Videoclub service offering subscribers access to thousands of pieces of content.

The new Meo via Go! encompasses films, concerts, documentaries as well as a proposal "to catalogue interfaces, and be “very similar” to IPTV, running on platforms inlcuding TV, PC , tablets, smartphones). Customers can also access interactive applications via the blue button Meo.

To take advantage of these new features, users need a Samsung-made MeoBox.

For PT, the pay-TV sector is an "attractive market" which means some 750,000 homes in Portugal, 300,000 of whom are Meo customers.
