Orange is coming up with new service for its customers called ‘cinema series’ where customers can watch six TV channels and video-on-demand on their TV, PC and mobile device.
“Apart from providing the triple-play offer, we will offer customers with options to choose how, where and when to watch content”, says Béatrice Mandine, director of press relations at Orange.
The service will consist of six channels, five plus one duplicated in high definition, of films and TV programs. At the same time, Orange will offer on-demand programming to TVs, PCs or mobiles.
To watch movies on mobile phones, users will need 3G (third-generation) service, and the bigger the screen is on the device the better, according to Mandine.
Orange cinéma séries will launch first in France in late 2008. Plans for other countries aren''t set. Orange didn't announce pricing, but users will pay a monthly fee for the service, according to Mandine.
