Vodafone news

Vodafone will launch its TV service in the UK later this year, it has confirmed. The telecoms giant previously announced it would land in the spring, which is right about now.

Vodafone's broadband service is due "in the coming weeks", group CEO Vittorio Colao said while announcing the firm's year-end financial results. The TV product will follow "later in 2015".

The move makes Vodafone the second mobile network to branch out into TV following EE's EE TV set-top box, which launched at the end of last year.

This would also make Vodafone a "quad-play" company. In other words, it would offer broadband, home phone, mobile and TV services.

The firm has three million 4G customers in the UK, and 20.2 million across 18 markets internationally. Its 4G coverage reaches 71 per cent of the UK.

During the last financial year, Vodafone acquired 139 stores that were previously Phones 4U. In total, it owns more than 500 stores nationwide.

Revenue for the Vodafone Group increased by 10.1 per cent to £42.2 billion.

Vodafone didn't reveal any more information about the TV service, but we would imagine it would be a similar proposition to EE TV. The firm already offers a choice of either Sky Sports Mobile TV or Spotify on certain contracts.

We'll bring you more news as we get it.
