Orange to launch broadband TV service later in 2007
The Orange Livebox is already used for IPTV services in France and it looks like Orange in the UK will be launching a television service over your broadband connection during 2007 according to informitv.com.
The service is expected to use a set-top box with hard-disk allowing people to record shows or download material to watch at a later date, or transfer onto other viewing devices, e.g. PC or mobile. To get around the problems of peak time viewing for some shows the device will probably combine broadcast channels (which we assume to mean Freeview content) and broadband video on demand (VoD) programming.
