Telecom still coy on TV detail

EditorNews Make a Comment

Telecom has revealed more about its upcoming online TV service – including a name (Lightbox), a logo, and how much viewers will pay ($15 per month). But no starting date.

The service will carry 5000 hours of shows across a variety of genres when it launches, and requires a broadband connection but no contract or special installation.

The start date has yet to be announced (Telecom says it will be “in the next few weeks”).

Up to five devices can be used with each Lightbox account, including laptops, desktops, and Apple and Android devices.
