Accedo Broadband, a provider of interactive and on-demand content for IPTV and online consumer electronics, announced that it will supply its Funspot game channel to BT Vision, BT’s next-generation TV service. Last week a similar announcement was made by the company when Tele 2 Vision, a Dutch IPTV provider, started to carry the service.
BT Vision customers will be able to play a selection of the most popular games, puzzles and quizzes suitable for the whole family. The selection of Funspot games available will be updated based on demand from BT Vision customers.
Accedo’s CEO Michael Lantz said “BT shares Accedo’s view of future on-demand entertainment, and it’s exciting to start our relationship by launching Funspot, the IPTV game channel. Funspot is already a success on the Microsoft Media Center platform both in UK and internationally, and BT’s usage of the Microsoft IPTV platform gives us great possibilities in rolling out a wide range of attractive games quickly.”
