French pay TV operator Canal Plus has released the Canal Touch app at Windows Store running Microsoft 8 to watch TV on new PCs and tablets. Canal Plus has upgraded the app with smooth streaming for optimum image quality, transparently based on the customer's bandwidth. The app provides start-over-TV to restart a live programme or a show that aired in the last 8 hours. When the Canal Plus catch-up VoD service is added at a future date, the app will give users access to more than 50 live channels, with smooth streaming technology for some.
