500 000 additional subscribers from the Netherlands
Good news for Dutch poker fans is that the Poker Channel has launched the sole dedicated poker channel in the Netherlands using the UPC digital platform and on KPN.
UPC expects to acquire some half a million additional subscribers through the partnership and the growing popularity of the Poker Channel, which has expanded into 12 major European markets in as many months (see previous InfoPowa report).
Most recent launches include Welho (Finland), Coditel (Belgium) in February this year; and Telefonica’s IPTV service, Imagenio, (Spain), and Melita Cable (Malta) in November 2007.
