Wednesday 25 September 2019 | 11:06 CET | News
Spanish regional operator Euskaltel has "a reasonable chance to capture a small piece of a growing market" with a TV-led convergent offering and a plan to expand throughout the territory, according to Eamonn O'Hare, the chief executive of its leading shareholder Zegona Communications. "We are hoping to capture people wanting to pay a smaller amount for a high-quality TV experience with free TV and pay TV options," said O'Hare in an interview with Digital TV Europe magazine.
