3GSM: Mobile Entertainment Summit - Telefonica/Lucent-Alcatel presentationTelefonica will expand its mobile TV services into Latin America this year, the company told 3GSM attendees. Under a hardware partnership with Alcatel-Lucent, the Spanish telco already operates a TV-over-IP service in Europe, reporting 304,000 subscribers in Spain and 20,000 in the Czech Republic. The Imagenio offering delivers television content to television sets via fixed-line IP as well as to broadband handsets. I spoke with Alcatel-Lucent’s multimedia president Luis Martinez Amago following the Mobile Entertainment Summit session in Barcelona today, but he refused to say in which quarter the service would be rolled out.
