KPN Extends iTV Service Contract with NSN

KPN has extended an iTV service contract with Nokia Siemens Networks until 2012. The deal includes middleware, encoders, video on demand, encryption, set-top boxes and PC clients. As the sole iTV supplier to KPN, Nokia Siemens Networks will maintain and develop the solution and help to drive enhancements to subscribers' TV experience as a crucial part of KPN's market strategy. KPN has used an NSN iTV solution since 2006.

Nokia Siemens Networks is providing KPN with a complete next-generation iTV solution with advanced capabilities, including high-definition TV, video-on-demand, and "timeshift" TV viewing (pausing, recording or rewinding of live TV programs). Nokia Siemens Networks will have sole responsibility for the customization and integration of the iTV solution into KPN's current network.
