Deutsche Telekom Announces IPTV Appplication Winners

Deutsche Telekom announce the ten semifinalists in its IPTV applications contest. Each of these semifinalists will win 50 thousand euros. These ten semifinalists will develop prototypes. The top three of these will then be selected for the final round. Each of these three finalists will win 100 thousand euros each. The three finalists will develop their applications onto the Deutsche Telekom platform. A winner will be selected from these three and will receive 200 thousand euros.

This is a great concept to stimulate application development and to generate new, creative applications. It would be great if other large IPTV providers in other regions would create similar programs.
