Through a unique and free multimedia player, users of the new service, customers of the operator’s Internet service (Wanadoo), can access musical content or watch DVD quality videos. The statement adds that, as a result of the agreement with Intel, the service adapts to the Viiv platform, guaranteeing a set of interactive services.

For users of the Orange mobile service, access to 24/24 Video will be possible within a short time. For now, the offer available at the video level allows the operator’s customers to choose from 2,500 available video sequels.

In terms of television, the offer has been available to MaLigne TV customers since 2003 with a list of 600 programs, selected for different types of audiences and updated every week.

MaLigne TV was launched by France Telecom in late 2003 and encompasses television broadcasting, Internet access and telephone, using the telephone line to deliver services.
