French IPTV provider Free has added commercial broadcaster TF1s new 3D service to the Freebox TV offer.
Free is making the service available to all subscribers with a suitable internet connection equipped with a Freebox HD. The events-based 3D channel will offer five exclusive 3D matches during the World Cup including the opening South Africa v Mexico match, one of the semi-finals and the final, as well as one of the last 16 and a quarter final.
Separately, Iliad Telecom, operator of the Free quad-play platform, has organised a refinancing of its bank debt by securing a Â1.4bn facility from BNP Paribas, Groupe CrÃ©dit Mutuel-CIC, CrÃ©dit Agricole and Investment Bank, Natixis, SociÃ©tÃ© GÃ©nÃ©rale Corporate and Investment Banking, West LB, ING and Raboban.
The five-year facility comprises a Â600m redeemable tranche and an Â800m revolving tranche. Iliad said the facility meant it had all the necessary financial resources to roll out its growth strategy.
