    Default Bharti Airtel IPTV services by the year end

    Bharti Airtel IPTV services by the year end
    Bharti Airtel, the telecom giant will target high-end consumers of the top 6-7 cities as part of its IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) strategy.

    The company started the IPTV trials a year ago in 1,000 households in Gurgaon and will launch its services before the end of the financial year. The IPTV service will be first rolled out in Delhi in a phased manner and then it will be launched in other top cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Gurgaon and Jaipur.

    IPTV will be targeted at top-end customers, and the customers outside this ambit will be the target for the direct-to-home (DTH) satellite television service. With DTH, the company would be able to offer pan-India coverage and serve all customers, and on the other hand with the IPTV, the company would be able to offer a superior service to customers in the areas served by the Bharti's fixed line network.

    Bharti Airtel's IPTV service will be offered as a bundled offering along with other services and the customer would be provided one combined bill at the end of the month. Other players with interest in the IPTV space include Reliance, BSNL, VSNL, MTNL and Microsoft. MTNL has already rolled out its IPTV service.

    Bharti Airtel has been upgrading their network to carrier-grade Ethernet for the IPTV services, which has been completed in Delhi and is beginning soon in Bangalore. The company would deliver the service through a backbone of Carrier Ethernet network and last mile delivery on copper using ADSL2+ technology.

    Bharti Airtel has partnered with UTStarcom, a player in VoIP, mobile internet, internet television and telecommunication solutions for its IPTV project. There would be 41.1 million IPTV households worldwide in 2011, up from approximately five million in 2006.

    Thanks for the news. I hope DTH rates should come down if the IPTV is cheap. But it is introduced by Airtel so I don't think they would be cheap.
