    Vodafone Portugal launches Casa TV for Xbox 360

    Vodafone Portugal has made its IPTV service 'Casa TV' available on the Xbox 360 games console, bringing together all the content and functionality of the IPTV service along with the gaming and entertainment capabilities of the console, and marking the first time a managed-network IPTV service has been formally integrated with the device.

    Casa TV for Xbox 360 gives customers access to all of their live Casa TV channels and on-demand programming via their Xbox 360, and can also access recorded shows stored on their set-top box, and set recording via their Xbox 360 console. They will also be able to start watching a recorded TV show in one room, pause the action and finish watching it on another TV connected to their Xbox 360.

    Casa TV for Xbox 360 also integrates with the Xbox LIVE community, enabling users to have a live voice chat with one of their Xbox LIVE friends whilst watching TV, or receive an invitation to play a game while watching a television show, accept the invitation, and launch into the Xbox game.

    The service will be available to both new and existing Casa TV customers, who will be able to choose to receive an Xbox 360 console as part of their subscription package, or install the Casa TV software on an existing console. The software is available for a one-off price of €9.90.

    “We’re pleased to be partnering with Vodafone to offer Microsoft Mediaroom for Xbox 360 to their Casa TV subscribers," said Ted Malone, Senior Director of Product Management in the TV, Video & Music business at Microsoft. "Casa TV for Xbox 360 will allow consumers to use their Xbox 360 as both a fully-functional Xbox 360 gaming console and a high-definition digital set-top box. In a highly competitive market, delivering a branded TV experience to the screens and devices consumers use the most gives our Mediaroom customers a real competitive advantage.”

    Vodafone Portugal launched Casa TV in July of this year, offering over 100 linear channels, as well as an extensive on-demand library with hundreds of films from leading and independent studios, and also a catch-up TV service. The service is based on the Microsoft Mediaroom platform and was implemented and customised for Vodafone Portugal by Alcatel-Lucent.
