Canal Plus beta tests OTT TV service

Wednesday 4 September 2013 | 16:07 CET | News
French pay TV operator Canal Plus is running beta tests of an internet TV service that could reach market in a few months, writes telesatellite.com. Several beta testers have received a special version of the Cube set-top box that allows them to receive the channels over the web for viewing on their TV set. To obtain an acceptable image quality, testers must have a connection of at least 2 Mbps, although for some channels, as little as 250 kbps or 50 kbps is enough, according to the report.
