Telecom Italia’s CuboVision lands on Windows 8

A new app has been developed for customers of Telecom Italia’s hybrid DTT+IP television service ‘CuboVision’ which enables them to access a stripped-down version of the service on their Windows 8 computer.

The app was developed by business technology solutions provider Avanade (a subsidiary of Accenture), and provides CuboVision subscribers with access to their video-on-demand library as well as a selection of free content such as news bulletins.

Telecom Italia launched its CuboVision service in December 2009, offering access to Italy’s free-to-air DTT channels, interactive Web TV and on-demand pay-per-view video, including high-definition content.

The service also enables users to access personal content such as photos, videos and music on their television, along with Web-hosted content such as weather forecasts and news.

It was revealed at the IBC trade show last September that Telecom Italia has partnered with French firm Technicolor for its next-gen CuboVision service, selecting the latter’s latest MediaPlay Set-Top Box platform, MediaAccess Residential Service Gateways, and content workflow and asset management services.
