French telecom operator SFR has launched its next generation home gateway to position itself as the most advance quad play player in the competitive marketplace. Called the Neufbox Evolution, it comes with an add-on with femtocells for local 3G relay and a new IPTV set-top box offering multiscreen TV delivery.
Wyplay, the company that developed Vodafone Internet TV for the Spanish and Italian markets, has been selected by French IPTV provider SFR to collaborate with its technical team to develop the software for its next generation of HD IPTV set-top box.
Both Freebox TV and Neufbox TV are adding new channels to their IPTV line up in France, the operators have announced. Bouygues Telecom is adding widgets to its Bbox.
French IPTV provider SFR is the first operator to take the six channel German packaged offer in France, called le Bouquet Allemand.
Subscribers to the Canal+ and CanalSat packages on the SFR IPTV network will now be able to enjoy the broadcaster’s on demand service through their televisions.
