The telco is expected to launch a new settop and cloud-based TV service later this year, allowing it to offer a quad-play of fixed and mobile telephony, broadband and TV.
UK newspaper The Telegraph reports that Vodafone is setting up a new call centre in Glasgow and office in Hammersmith, from where its TV service will be run.
It is recruiting ‘dozens’ of staff for the new service, including acquisitions execs and technical staff, the paper added.
According to the Telegraph, Vodafone has tapped TV technology provider Kaltura to provide the software for the platform, and has held talks with Sagemcom and Technicolor to provide set-top boxes.
