Following the acquisition of Jazztel, it has taken Orange Spain less than two months to officially present a new convergent offer, based on fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), high speed broadband and a refreshed pay-TV package.

orangepreciosOrange has now five million homes connected to its FTTH network and aims to double this by the end of next year.

Through this network, the French-based company intends to offer download speeds of up to 300Mbps, like its major competitor, Telefónica, and upload speeds of 300Mbps. In addition to broadband, Orange has also presented new mobile, 4G-based offers, aiming to merge all telecom services into a single subscription.

The telco is to relaunch its pay-TV offer, which has barely attained 100,000 subs since it launched in Spain in 2008. The new offers include HD premium channels and content video-on-demand (VOD) content and, for the first time, football, after Orange reached an agreement with Telefónica to buy all La Liga rights for the 2015-2016 season.

The fresh Orange TV platform focuses on HD and TV everywhere, enabling subs to watch on-demand TV on all screens, including smart TVs, tablets, smartphones and computers.
