Pace Wins BT Order

Pace has won a significant order for set-top boxes from BT for its BT Vision service. Pace recently acquired the IPTV set-top box business from Philips, which has supplied set-top boxes for BT Vision since it started in December 2006. BT also signed a contract for IPTV set-top boxes with Motorola in January 2008.

This is an important piece of business for Pace and a major reason why it acquired the Philips IPTV set-top box business. It is quite natural that BT would bring Motorola in as a second vendor for a service as large as BT Vision is likely to become.
