Sogecable launches Canal Plus channel on DTT

Spanish pay-TV operator Sogecable is launching a version of its Canal Plus channel on Spain’s digital terrestrial TV network. The Canal Plus Two channel will offer the same content as the regular Canal Plus premium channel on DTH minus the sporting events. Prisa-owned Sogecable said it will charge €15 a month for the channel. It launches on August 23.

Consumers will need a DTT set-top with the relevant conditional access module to access the channel. Canal Plus will offer it on a standalone basis to those who already have the appropriate set-top, or with a conditional access module and card for those who do not.
