Microsoft IPTV enters France, Germany

Microsoft is set to enter the European market with deployments in Germany and France by the end of the summer. Germany's Deutsche Telekom is offering Microsoft IPTV via their Club Internet service in France--offering HDTV, dual show watching and 50-hour DVR capability. Current Club members can sign up as early as the end of the month and new members can subscribe come August. DT plans on bringing the service to Germany by the end of the summer, and the U.K.'s BT Group plans to do the same later this year. Last year, Switzerland took a look at Microsoft IPTV, but early tests proved the technology wasn't up to snuff.
