Image 1: Numericable: false triple play at € 19.90As every year, access providers are looking for a new lease of life for the new school year, and are trying to launch new offers at an ever more attractive price. This is for example the case of Numericable, which announces for December 6 a triple play offer at the floor price of 19.90 euros per month.

TV suffers

Internet, telephone and television for 19.90 euros per month, or ten euros cheaper than the prices observed among the competition, this is what Numéricable is announcing for the end of the year. But how is the cable operator capable of such a feat? Not by eating away at its margins, but rather on television. If the operator indeed indicates that “total control of its network and therefore of its costs” allows such a price reduction, it would seem above all that a total control of the television offer is at the origin.

In other words, this offer, which will be available from December 6, will only offer the 18 channels already free of DTT, not one more. Another important point: these channels will be accessible via a decoder … which will not be supplied by default and whose price is not yet known! It is therefore a slightly castrated triple play offer, which however has the advantage of being significantly cheaper than its competitors.
