The operations of Virgin Media, Unitymedia KabelBW, Telenet and the broadband communications and direct-to-home satellite (DTH) operations of UPC Holding are collectively known as the European Operations Division. The broadband communications operations in Chile are provided through a 80%-owned subsidiary, VTR GlobalCom SpA (VTR GlobalCom).

Certain of Chellomedia’s subsidiaries and affiliates provided programming services to certain broadband communications operations, primarily in Europe. Business Broadband Distribution The company offers various broadband services over its cable distribution systems, including video, broadband Internet and fixed-line telephony, and in certain of its operations the company offers mobile services. The company designs these services to enable its customers to access the digital world on their own terms and at their own pace. In most of its footprint, the core of its offer to customers is ‘triple-play’, which the company uses to describe bundled services of digital video, Internet and fixed-line telephony in one subscription. In select markets, the company also offers video services through DTH or through multichannel multipoint (microwave) distribution systems (MMDS). The company’s consumer brands include Virgin Media, UPC, Unitymedia, Kabel BW, Telenet, VTR GlobalCom and in Puerto Rico, Liberty. In terms of video subscribers, the company operates the cable network in each of Austria, Belgium, Chile, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Puerto Rico, Slovakia, Switzerland, the U.K., Germany, the Netherlands and Romania. Residential Services Video: The company’s cable operations offer a range of video services, including basic and premium programming, which can be accessed on the television and, in select markets, through Internet connected devices in the home and whenever there is Internet connectivity. The company provides advanced service offerings, such as high definition (HD) channels, digital video recorder (DVR), HD DVR and, in certain markets, video-on-demand (VoD), which give its customers the ability to control when they watch their programming. In several of its markets, the company also has enhanced pay-per-view programming on channels the company distributes and through VoD. In addition, the company offers select programming in three-dimensional (3D) format to its customers who have 3D capable televisions. Several of its operations offer television applications (apps) that allow access to programming on various devices, including laptops and tablets. To receive its digital services, a subscriber must either purchase or rent a set-top box, and obtain a conditional access security card, or a ‘smart card,’ from its operators. Neither a set-top box nor a smart card is required to receive basic digital television channels in it
