VOD on DTT from TDF
TDF, the transmission network provider, has offered broadcasters the opportunity to test Vision On Demand (VOD) in early 2009.
This offers users the chance to access additional content and programmes downloaded to the hard disk of their STB overnight for when they are ready to view it.
Top Up TV in the UK has run a push VOD service since 2006 and there is also said to be interest in such a system from the Norwegian pay-TV platform Riks TV.
For a VOD system to operate in France the current licence, which currently precludes its use, needs to be amended.
