Portugal - Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Portugal has seen considerable development in the converged services market, largely through customers making greater use of network upgrades which can better support bundled packages. The main cableco is NOS, which was formed from the merger of Zon Multimédia with Sonaecom’s subsidiary Optimus, becoming Zon Optimus before the rebranding to NOS in May 2014. The digital TV platform in Portugal was completed in April 2012. Although there are few DTTV channels available, the regulator has endeavoured to switch to a Multi Frequency Network which will enable at least six additional channels to be carried.
