The European market for connected TVs is heating up

France’s Orange is in talks with TV manufacturers Samsung, LG and Panasonic to integrate its services with TVs connected to the internet, according to a report in French financial daily Les Echos.

The number of actors attempting to bring the connected TV vision to reality in Europe is quite diverse. I am organizing my analysis of the market by the following categories:
  • Operators acting independently (Orange);
  • Operators acting within the framework of the Open IPTV Forum;
  • Content owners and CE manufacturers (HbbTV);
  • Technology vendors (IBM WebSphere Portal, Yahoo! Connected TV, etc.); and
  • Connected TV companies acting independently to sign deals with individual content owners/providers.
