The French IPTV operator Bouygues Telecom said it has reached more than 300,000 homes equipped with the multifunctional BBox.

A latecomer to the buoyant French IPTV market, the Bbox was launched in October 2008. It is part of the quad play offer of the operator with mobile telephony, VOIP, broadband internet access and digital IPTV in a single package.

The Bbox offers over 1090 television channels, five of which are in HD, as well as access to premium channels from Canal+ and CanalSat. Triple play offers start at €29.90 a month and quad play at €39.90, including three hours of unlimited mobile calling.
