In 1998, Penki Kontinentai were the first ones in Lithuania to start developing a fibre-optic Skynet network, and in 2007, started to provide IP television services via it. Today, the IPTV customers of this company are already enjoying not only regular but also HD and 3D definition channels. Whereas at the end of the last year, the creators of the channel Penki TV owned by the company aired the first Lithuanian broadcast “IT+” in the 3D format. It is noteworthy that besides regular TV services, IPTV customers have the opportunity to use many additional interactive features: to surf the internet, to play games on the TV screen, to record desired broadcasts and watch them at any desired time, to create a personal TV grid, to listen to favourite radio stations via TV, and to control and watch television on a mobile device, etc.
