Bluestreak Technology gives French operator Bouygues ability to go beyond Flash

LAS VEGAS--Canadian IPTV provider Bluestreak Technology says it's signed a deal with French network operator, Bouygues Telecom, to deliver Internet services--both Flash and HTML5--to Bouygues Telecom's Bbox IPTV subscribers.

Through the new contract, Bouygues Telecom will use Bluestreak Technology's family of MachBlue products, including MachBlue Classic and MachBlue XT, to deliver multimedia content to Bouygues Telecom's Bbox IPTV interface.
The Bbox offers over 220 television channels, including both free-to-air, premium, and HD channels, as well as access to Internet content.

"The response to our innovative Bbox TV services has been overwhelmingly positive," said Director of Fixed and Mobile Services and Fixed Product Delivery at Bouygues Telecom Della Miret. "Bluestreak Technology... products give us the ability to offer a wide variety of Internet services and channels that are uniquely optimized for our customers' televisions.

"Through this expanded partnership, we now have the freedom to deliver both Flash and HTML5 content through a single interface, reducing costs and accelerating time to market for new services. We look forward to working with Bluestreak more closely over the long-term as we continue to grow and expand Bbox in the future."

This is the first time Bouygues Telecom has expanded beyond Flash to offer Internet and video content streamed using HTML5 technology. Bluestreak will deliver both standards.

"Our products enable leading companies, like Bouygues Telecom, to integrate with a single platform for all their content delivery and application needs," said Bluestreak Technology CEO and President Dominique Jodoin. "The result is that operators can rapidly deploy new services and consumers, like Bbox subscribers, can consistently enjoy fluid navigation and fast access speeds to a wide variety of innovative IPTV services."

The Bbox is offered as part of a triple play and quad play, including three hours of unlimited mobile calling.
