Numericable signs deal with housing group, expands VOD

French cable operator Numericable has signed an agreement with social housing group Société Nationale Immobilière (SNI) to provide its Service Unique Numérique (SUN) to SNI residents. 

SNI manages about 350,000 dwellings, and Numericable’s network covers about 150,000 of these. The agreement covers future construction projects by SNI.

Numericable’s SUN provides a basic bundle of 2Mbps internet access, 18 free-to-air national and 30 international TV channels and a phone line.

Separately, Numericable has added UniversCiné to its video-on-demand offering. The deal adds UniversCiné’s 2,500-plus film titles from independent studios to the Numericable VOD catalogue. Titles from UniversCiné include Au bout du conte, Entre les murs, Les invisibles and Quartet.
