Five major cable television providers, namely SCTV, VTVcab, VNPT, Viettel, and FPT, are competing to offer multiple services to win more subscribers. Instead of using separate lines, customers will need only one line to simultaneously use different services, including high-quality television, internet, and telephones. Saigontourist Cable Television (SCTV), a large television operator, has been providing telecommunication services for nearly two years. SCTV has provided integrative packages; for example, analogue cable television and internet, digital television and internet, as well as television and internet, and fixed telephone lines. The more services customers register for, the more preferential rates they will be offered. VTVcab charges fairly low prices for television and internet service packages. Both VTVcab and SCTV have applied a free-of-cost policy on equipment such as HD digital receivers, modems, and WiFi routers, as well as complimentary gifts such as milk or helmets.

The three telecommunication providers also offer multi-services on a single cable line. VNPT has made many promotional offers for customers who register for their television service, if they are already using their telephone and internet packages. VNPT has garnered 900,000 subscriptions within three years. Ha Van Dung, director of Nghe An cable television, said pay TV market share in Nghe An is dominated by Viettel.

Competition needed in cable TV services (04-03-2009) HCM CITY — Better supervision and more competition among cable television operators will improve services, according to an industry spokesman. Nguyen Van Ngo of the Viet Nam Radio Electronics Association said services had declined because there had been no supervision from any state agency after the Viet Nam Broadcast and Television Committee dissolved in 1987. Many provinces, including HCM City, have used analog cable television, which is cheaper than digital but offers poorer quality. Many provinces hire Chinese companies that provide analog technology, which is out of date and hard to maintain. Cable television providers in Viet Nam mainly use copper wires, not fibre cables, which leads to poor quality TV reception, especially in the rainy season, according to Ngo. In addition, providers do not often check lines that connect distribution stations to customers. The association recommends that television service providers use digital signal cable television not only for high quality but also for its ability to integrate with other utilities, such as the internet. Ngo said more providers would offer increased competition, resulting in better benefits to customers. New technology was also important, he said, adding that DTH (direct-to-home) technology would allow signals to be directly transferred from satellite to houses. Last year the Ministry of Information and Communication set up the Directorate of Broadcasting and Electronic Information in an aim to guide provinces in implementing new TV technologies. "When customers complain by mail or document, the department will inspect and punish…... [read more]
