Samsung to plug Five On Demand into IPTVs
Catch-up channel coming
Samsung is to add telly channel Five's catch-up service to its new HDTV-hosted IPTV platform, Smart TV.
Smart TV, introduced earlier this year and building on last year's Samsung IPTV interface, Internet@TV, already presents catch-up and on-demand services BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm, Blinkbox and PictureBox.
It also connects to all the other usual suspects: YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
Samsung didn't say when Five On Demand will arrive on Smart TV. The firm sells seven telly lines with Smart TV on board. It's not clear if the service will also appear on older Intenet@TV sets. ®
