Brand renewal brings broadband services together with Digital TV

As of 1 October, HTV's consumer services are offered under a single brand, Welho Broadband and Digital TV. This includes over 80 digital TV channels as well as ready-to-use broadband internet connection.

Welho's competitive advantages, such as the fast delivery and ready to use connection, flexibility, reliability, and a good price-quality relation have made Welho the most popular broadband service in its region.

HTV's pay TV services are now totally digital. Welho Digital TV's basic offering includes 20 channels and over 60 pay TV channels in different packages. New channels include movie channel Showtime! and Star! which follows closely the events of the entertainment worlds as well as ESPN Classic Sport channel. Analogical pay TV services will end in HTV's networks at the end of November 2004. The digital channels enable a larger variety of channels as well as clearly better image and sound.

HTV (Helsinki Television Ltd) is Finland's largest cable TV company, offering a range of digital TV services and broadband internet services. Over 273,000 households in the capital region (Helsinki and surroundings) are connected to HTV's broadband network. HTV is part of SanomaWSOY's electronic media division, SWelcom.
