The Board of Directors chaired today by Giuseppe Recchi discussed and resolved to accelerate the quadruple play strategy by entering into production of premium content for ultra-broadband and to spin-off the activities of TIMvision.
The new company’s mission will be to present a video offer enriched with original premium content produced and co-produced both nationally and internationally.
The strategy outlined by Chief Executive Officer Flavio Cattaneo to the Board of Directors identifies TIMvision as the tool to provide TIM with exclusive content in ultra-broadband that will support the uptake of fibre consumption by enlarging the offering of IPTV products and services.
Further details on the development of the business will be outlined as part of the 2017-2019 Strategic Plan, which will be unveiled in February 2017.
