Source: The Statesman MTNL to start 3-in-1 services, phone, cable TV and broadband Press Trust of India NEW DELHI, Jan. 1. â€” In a major exercise to reposition itself, amid fierce competition from the private sector, state-run MTNL is all set to launch 3-in-1 services (phone, cable TV and broadband) on a single phone line this month and has tied up with Mumbai-based Time Internet Broadband as a content provider. â€œWe shall start the services this month. The content provider will offer video-on-demand and such required services. There will be a virtual convergence of voice, data and video,â€? MTNL CMD Mr RSP Sinha said here. Asked whether MTNL is authorised to offer cable TV services and the mechanism to operate, Mr Sinha said we have cable license with us. As far as operational part is concerned, the content provider Time Internet Broadband will be executing it. Asked about the charges, Mr Sinha said different models have been worked out and a major emphasis has been given to the quality of services but as always like in other services MTNLâ€™s tariffs would be extremely affordable. We shall be repositioning MTNL with the launch of this service known as TriplePlay, Mr Sinha said. The corporation has already tied up with over 50 channels and was in negotiations with others, he said, adding trial runs of 3-in-1 services has been successful.
