Hubee has been selected by France Télévisions to provide OTT IPTV technologies to the francetv pluzz catch-up TV portal on Free STB.

This portal supplies content from five TV channels (France 2, France 3, France 4, France 5 and France Ô) and nine overseas channels from the French public broadcaster.

The Hubee IPTV solution has been deployed to simplify access to all multimedia information, providing easy management of the portal.

A specialist in on-demand TV, Hubee has built new applications and services, enabling it to highlight on its homepage the most viewed and most tweeted content, which is also arranged by product, season, theme and episode.

France Televisions has also extended its catch-up TV service with the VOD service Pluzz VAD and chosen Hubee as its benchmark technical partner for VOD.

The initial catalogue comprises some 3,000 programmes covering a number of different genres.

Pluzz VAD plans to ramp up its offering with significant content updates with more than 200 programmes and other shows coming online each month.
