Microsoft Mediaroom is powering the new IPTV service launched by the Italian operator Wind. Mediaroom has been selected as part of the Alcatel-Lucent Triple Play Solution that Wind launched late last week under the Infostrada TV brand. Wind has selected the Motorola 1616T set-top box.
Subscribers will have access to the by now familiar featureset that includes multiple picture-in-picture, personal video recorder (PVR) functionality and video on demand. Subscribers will also have a selection of international channels and services from the pay-TV operator Sky Italia.
