Portugal Telecom’s IPTV operation Meo has unveiled Meo Interactivo, an application store that will host apps from Facebook, Oceanlook, Picasa and Flickr.Meo Interactivo takes advantage of the Microsoft Mediaroom operating system it has used since June 2007. Subscribers will be able to watch TV and simultaneous check their Facebook account, see posts on their wall, and access photos within their own account or those of their friends.
The Oceanlook site gives information, such as weather, tides and water temperatures for 300 beaches on the Portuguese coast. Pictures posted onto Picasa and Flickr sites will be visible as an extension to the existing Meo Fotos service.
It has also been confirmed that Meo has surpassed 700,000 customers, representing 78% of PT’s ADSL customers. This takes Meo’s market share to 27%, compared to 24.9% at the end of the first quarter.
