Cubovision for DTT and broadband access
Telecom Italia has launched a hybrid set-top box, called Cubovision, combining digital terrestrial television with broadband access. The unit will give viewers access to all Italian DTT channels, including the various premium channels. The additional broadband connection gives customers access to the Cubovision portal from Telecom Italia, which offers 1,500 hours of regularly-updated programming spanning over 200 TV series, cartoons, documentaries, concerts and movies. The box also brings “the best of WebTV”, including Telecom Italia’s La7.tv, directly to home TV screens according to the item.
The Cubovision service is also accessible from the latest generation of connected Samsung Smart TVs and is planned to be accessed by tablets and smartphones with the appropriate downloaded application.
