Vodafone will launch TV service in the UK before April 2016

Vodafone’s latest financial report has revealed that the provider plans to launch a TV service in the UK before April next year. The addition of TV to its portfolio will make the company the latest ‘quad-play’ operator in the UK.

In the Vodafone report, the company says that it will launch TVbefore the end of the financial year - in other words, before March31 2016. It's not a major part of the report, but the TV launch ismentioned multiple times - later on the report reiterates "our newTV service to follow in Q4."

Vodafone only launched its new broadband packages nationwidelast month. Three are available - standard ADSL, superfast fibrewith speeds up to 38Mb and an even faster fibre package that goesup to 76Mb.

All contracts are 18-months, and Vodafone mobile customers get a£5 discount on the monthly bill. Plus there are other perks forVodafone Red customers, including inclusive calls to landlines onhome phone, and 300 minutes for mobile calls.

Price-wise, Vodafone is comparable to the likes of BT and Skyfor broadband. The provider does have some unique tricks up itssleeve, however.

For example, its Vodafone Connect app lets you prioritise Wi-Fispeeds to different devices. So, for example, if you're downloadingsomething on your computer, you can send a bit of extra bandwidththat way to give it a little kick up the proverbial. You can alsochoose to disconnect various devices at set times of the day, suchas bedtime.
