Telecable brings interactive VOD to Spain's mobile users

Spanish regional cable operator Telecable is preparing its Tedi interactive and on-demand (VOD) TV platform TV to go mobile.

Tedi started as a brand for interactive TV through an advance set-top-box (STB), but now the 40 live channels and the VOD service will now be available for mobile devices using the iOS and Android operating systems. Tedi has already been ported to the online platform and the mobile service wild offer catch-up functionality just like the DVR capability running on the STB version.

The service offers 40 channels, 20 of which are already broadcasting in HD, and the VOD section has now over 600 films.

The regional TV operator focuses on a small market in northern Spain, where the competition in cable pay-TV isn't really strong. It has a stable client base but its latest financial figures showed a need for new services to consolidate its user base.
