Vodafone Portugal Launches Digital TV with Alcatel-Lucent

In July, Vodafone Portugal launched its "Casa" Digital Television (IPTV) service, providing access to more than 100 TV channels, including 8 high definition channels and hundreds of movies available via video on demand (VoD). The move reinforced Vodafone Portugal's offer for the home and strengthens its position as a total communications company. Alcatel-Lucent served as network integrator.

The offer includes all advanced television features such as High Definition Image (HD) and Dolby Surround Sound, as well as a wide portfolio of innovative services.

The service also has a unique user interface, specially designed for Vodafone and developed by Alcatel-Lucent for simplified and intuitive access to all the television and video services features. The "Vodafone Casa TV" service reuses the network architecture developed for providing broadband and voice services. The middleware and DRM are Microsoft's platform.
