Orange finally set for U.K. TV launch

France's Orange reportedly is just about set to finally unveil its IPTV service in the U.K., more than a year after the launch was first expected. About four months ago, the France Telecom unit said that it was still committed to entering the U.K. market this year, blaming regulatory hurdles for the delay. Since then, it seems to have taken its time testing the service. It will now be entering an even more mature TV market, which, according to IPTV Watch, is led by experienced firms like Sky and Virgin and is also being pursued by new IPTV players like BT and upcoming entrants such as O2.
