Orange Postponed IPTV in the UK

Orange, the France Telecom Subsidiary, has postponed the introduction of its IPTV service in the UK until 2008. It was originally scheduled for introduction before the end of 2007. Orange is currently operating an IPTV trail with 350 subscribers in Leeds and London.

The coverage of Orange's broadband network in the UK is about 40 percent compared to about 60 percent for other competitive carriers.

France Telecom is a leading TelcoTV service provider and has the technology well in hand. It appears that its broadband coverage and other network issues are causing it to delay its IPTV service introduction in the UK.
