WHILE negotiations over its debt mountain and future ownership remain up in the air, Eircom could soon be showing Oscar nominated movie The Help, and other films too, when it launches an extensive video on demand and television service to its customers by the end of 2012.

The arrival of Netflix and increased competition from UPC has meant Eircom has ratcheted up the planning for its cable television and movies service, which will need major investment in order to upgrade its network.

Most major European telcos have already introduced TV services for their customers. It allows them to choose programming which is then accessed online.
