LG and Orange connect via TV

January 12, 2010

The French run telecoms firm Orange and the Korean electronics firm LG have announced a new partnership.

The two companies will work together for at least three years, to put the Orange video service into LG televisions.

This is a deal that closely follows one recently announced between the BBC and Samsung.

These arrangements mean that the big electrical manufacturers are tying up national providers of internet based TV services.

Orange’s deal with LG is clearly intended for the French market, and will offer owners of the new LG television sets access to news, sports, television and radio shows.

However owners of these TVs will not get access to the Orange IPTV service, which includes the streaming of programming and on demand services.
