Microsoft IPTV: Now That's Italian!
Both carriers are part of what Microsoft TV's marketing chief, Ed Graczyk, calls the "early adopter program," though the Italian carrier isn't as advanced as its Swiss neighbor, as it has the TV-over-DSL system in lab trials only. "We expect consumer trials to start in early 2005, and for Telecom Italia to quickly scale up to thousands of households," says Graczyk, who is in Amsterdam for the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2004 that starts today.
