The move extends Orange's VOD strategy via its IPTV service, Orange TV, and mobile telecommunications services.

Orange TV offers 51 French and international channels as well as 15 paid-optional channels and special events such as HD broadcasting of the Tour de France. The service had 745,000 customers in France at the end of March.

Orange TV is expected to launch in the UK and elsewhere in Europe later this year.
