"Japan’s largest broadband provider, Softbank BB Corp., has been busy building its new IPTV offering, BBTV, using UTStarcom Inc.'s mVision solution, the equipment vendor announced Wednesday.
The new IPTV service is the third product in a triple-play bundle to be delivered over Softbank BB’s widely popular Yahoo! BB broadband service. BBTV will feature 28 live broadcast channels and more than 5,200 video on demand (VOD) movies, UTStarcom says."
"The account looks to be a “showcase” account for UTStarcom’s IPTV solution. At the end of March, Softbank BB had 4.8 million Yahoo! BB ADSL lines installed. More than 4.5 million people had registered to use Yahoo! BB’s VOIP service, called “BB Voice.”"
