Vodafone Spain has started commercialising the first Ultra HD set-top box (STB) in the country, for both fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and ADSL-based TV packages.

vodafone mitvAlthough other operators like Movistar+ have recently been scheduling 4K content, especially with regard to sports, no player has yet launched an STB which supports the ultra high definition (UHD) standard.

Following the launch, the British telco, Spain's second largest pay-TV operator, will also add up four Ultra HD channels: the music network Festival 4K; the entertainment networks Fun Box UHD and Insight TV; and Slow Channel, a background signal with images.

Through this move, Vodafone will also unify its TV offering for both IPTV and ADSL subscribers. Vodafone TV includes over 120 channels, time-shifted broadcasting, video-on-demand (VOD) and integrated smart apps such as Netflix. In addition, the set-top box supports DTT, enabling access to Spain's large free-to-air schedule.

The telco continues its move into pay-TV as it consolidates as a fibre operator after the acquisition of ONO. Last week Vodafone also announced a plan to deploy mobile TV in order to drive data demand.
