Danish cable operator YouSee is investing DKK250 million (33.5 million) in a network upgrade that will expand capacity and enable the delivery of enhanced interactive services.
The operator said it would quadruple the capacity of its network to deliver on-demand services this year. It will then double the capacity every year for the next three years so the network will be able to handle 35 times as much on-demand TV as it does today.
YouSee delivers about 350,000 films on-demand each month at present, while the use of catch-up services has increased by 90% over the last 12 months.
“We’re going to see quite a large increase in both distribution and consumption of on-demand television in the coming years,Â said YouSee technical director JÃ¸rgen Michaelsen. ÂElsewhere in the world, for example in the US, is further developed but there is no doubt that we are already seeing a change in Danish television behavior towards greater consumption of time-shifted TV.Â
