Hall said the deal, which completed earlier this month, meant Pace was well positioned for the convergence of video, voice and data services.Technology giants such as Apple and Google are moving into TV, with services such as video-on-demand, but Hall said they were not a major threat to Pace’s cable and satellite customer base. He said: “They don’t really compete with linear TV but they are driving operators to innovate. Consumers are expecting a better experience.”Analysts expect the firm to report pre-tax profit of £97.1m on revenue of £1.28bn for the year. whatsapp Demand for HD television buoys Pace whatsapplast_img
