LG Dacom, Korea's third-largest fixed-line operator, yesterday launched the broadband-based internet protocol television, intensifying competition in the market. Now there are three broadband service providers that offer the IPTV service, which they believe will serve as a new growth engine in the almost saturated telecommunications market. IPTV is expected to bring a major change in television viewing by offering viewers a wide-ranging selection of programs on demand. LG Dacom said its IPTV service, dubbed 'myLGtv,' is available through a bundled product, which also includes broadband Internet access and a telephone service. The broadband service is offered by LG Dacom's subsidiary, LG Powercom."
