Deutsche Telekom to roll out Internet TV

Deutsche Telekom, Germany's leading telecom group, plans to launch its new Internet TV service with more than 70 different channels before the start of the new premiere league season on August 11, a report from Die Welt said.
The report said the firm would start marketing the new service during the next few days, but had not yet completed its negotiations with German TV channels ZDF, ARD and RTL.
The group revealed that it still had to clarify a few details in its negotiations with state-owned channels ARD and ZDF.
If Deutsche Telekom reaches an agreement with the two channels before the start of the German premiere league season, its new Internet TV service might be launched with around 100 different channels, the report said.
The group had teamed up with Premiere, the German pay-TV group, in connection with the project. Programs would be broadcast using Deutsche Telekom's new high-speed VDSL network, which would initially be available in 10 German cities.
