[The Chosun Ilbo, January 23 2008] Microsoft Korea Joins Daum in IPTV Business

Daum Communications, Microsoft Korea and Celrun, a set-top box supplier, have agreed to cooperate in an Internet protocol television business.

The three companies signed a memorandum of understanding for the tentatively-named Open IPTV service on Tuesday.

Open IPTV would be different from existing IPTV services in that it would allow anyone to supply content using a network of network operators like KT, they said.

The companies will announce the details of their plan as soon as the government's enforcement ordinance for IPTV laws is determined.

Microsoft Korea said if Open TV is successful in Korea then it will take the service to overseas markets.
