Movistar TV IPTV Spain
Movistar TV is an IPTV service operated by Telefónica. The service was started as a commercial test pilot in the city of Alicante in 2001 and later extended to some major cities such as Madrid and Barcelona in April 2004. In 2013, Movistar Imagenio was rebranded to Movistar TV.
A new service by Telefonica has just been launched to the major urban areas (over 100,000 in population) called Imagenio. This is television over broadband, or as they are calling it, IPTV. You rent a cable box, so to speak, for about 7 Euros per month and then your ADSL line is used to deliver 45+ channels as well as a larger library of video on demand, including movies and many unpopular series.
The channel line-up includes some international English-language channels, such as CNN International and BBC World News. Additionally for certain channels, Movistar TV allows the viewer to switch instantly from the dubbed Spanish versions of foreign-made programs to the original-language version. This facility is available for many digital channels such as TCM, Calle 13, FOX and Disney Channel but not for national terrestrial/digital channels such as TVE, Antena3 or Telecinco.
There are NO mainstream British television channels on this service. It is primarily a Spanish service.
