Israeli cell firm Partner launches TV carrier

TEL AVIV: Partner Communications, Israel’s 2nd-largest cellular telephone employer, released a domestic TV service on Tuesday as part of a plan to generate new income streams in the face of excessive competition inside the mobile cellphone marketplace. Partner’s revenue and income have plunged in the wake of a 2012 reform that spread out the cell marketplace to many recent players, and its new TV provider follows a similar flow with the aid of rival Cellcom years ago.

Partner TV will be available from July and cost 69 shekels ($20) a month, or 89 shekels with a Netflix subscription. It will offer cut-fee programs bundling TV with home phones and the net and can later include mobiles.

Israel’s television marketplace is ruled by cable organization HOT and satellite TV company YES, whose good-sized offerings can cost over 300 shekels a month. Analysts say Partner will want to seize up to 6 percent of the TV marketplace to break even.

While the charge is low enough to entice many Israelis to Partner’s new provider, critics consider the absence of an HBO channel, which rivals have, should keep individuals who revel in “Game of Thrones” and other HBO shows away.
