France Televisions attacks Free for charging for optimal VoD

Friday 15 February 2013 | 11:26 CET | News
French public broadcaster France Television has attacked ISP Free's premium service for the Replay catch-up TV service on the Freebox package due to peak usage levels in the evenings. Since 2010, the company offers 'priority passes' for optimal video delivery, costing EUR 0.99 a night or EUR 3.99 a month. Freebox Replay was previously offered only free of charge. The bottlenecks between 19:00 and 22:00 must be resolved another way, France Televisions director Laurent Frisch told 01net. The broadcaster is required to provide free access to its programmes to TV licence payers and argues that Free must increase the capacity of its infrastructure to meet demand.
