VOO has added the HD channels TF1 HD, France 2 HD, TV Ushuaïa HD, 13th Street HD and Eurosport HD to the line-up.
The digital SD offer has also been expanded with the channels RTBF3, Eurosport, 13th Street, Ushuaia TV, Disney Channel, Gulli, KidsCo, I-Concert, MTV base, Contact Vision and TVE 24Horas.

VOO is now in the process of upgrading all of its networks and claims 90% of all its connected homes will be 2-way capable before the end of the year.

VOO is also introducing a VOD service, with an initial offer of about 1,000 movies and documentaries.
