DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 05 February 2015

Not even six months after increasing its telecom services in Panama by launching the +TV Digital direct-to-home (DTH) pay-TV platform, Cable & Wireless is to improve the content offer with more channels without changing the price of the pre-paid package.

A&E Mundo, AXN, The History Channel, Sony Entertainment Television, Warner Channel, Cinemax, E! Entertainment TV, Lifetime and H2 will be added to the current 50-channel platform, which requires no subscription and can be purchased from three days ($5) up to a month ($25).

+TV Digital, which aims to meet the needs of the country's most remote areas which can't receive cable, was launched in November and is powered by satellite services wholesaler Media Networks, Telefónica's B2B unit.

The platform's current offer includes news channels such as BBC World News, CNN and Al Jazeera; sports networks like ESPN and Fox Sports; religious channels including Enlace and EWTN; kids programming such as Disney Channel, Boomerang TV and Cartoon Network; movies and series networks like TNT, Space, FOX and TBS; and entertainment and soap operas channels including Caracol TV, Pasiones and HTV.
