IBC Wrap: Miniweb On Samsung, BT TV Network, STV Discovery

The IPTV news is coming thick and fast this week, not least because the IBC conference is happening in Amsterdam…

Miniweb: The interactive TV company is launching “Woomi”, a brand which includes online video content from several distributors, as a service on Samsung’s Internet@TV gateway. It will afford pay-for video. No names of included content partners yet, however.

BT (NYSE: BT) Content Connect: BT Wholesale says it will offer broadcasters a TV-over-broadband service that’s better than a standard CDN and guarantees network quality, based on Cisco’s Content Delivery System.

STV: The Scottish broadcaster has picked TV Genius‘ content discovery engine to power TV recommendations for users of its STV Player catch-up service.
