France Telecom Reaches 200,000 IPTV Subscribers, Launches "Le Bouquet" MPEG4

France Telecom now has over 200,000 subscribers for its MaLigne TV, a premium IPTV service that was first launched in December 2003. As of 30-Sep-2005, there were 142,000 MaLigne TV customers in France, compared to 116,000 at the end of June.



Starting February 1, France Telecom is expanding the offering with the launch of "Le Bouquet TV", featuring free access to a range of general and specialized channels as well as all the free channels available with Digital Terrestrial Television.



Le Bouquet TV will use an MPEG4-standard decoder.



MaLigne TV is already providing access to some 200 channels.



France Telecom will also begin carrying exclusive channels for major events. For the Turin Winter Games, it will have seven dedicated channels.



France Telecom is also launching "Mon Magneto", another DSL-based video service that lets customers manage live recordings directly on their decoder's hard drive (PVR).
