An IPTV project which aims to provide elderly residents with useful information streamed to their TV sets is set to be extended.

Stream IPTV, which includes programmes on exercise and crime prevention advice, is currently enjoyed by around 50 homes in the Hull area, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

This number is expected to be upped to the 250 mark, with viewers of the 'Independent Living Campaign' - the service's other moniker - being supplied with a set-top box which gives them access to the programming.

Mark Jones, managing director of Broadband Capital, the firm which developed the service, told the newspaper: "Combining the familiarity of television with the internet, vulnerable residents can be shown how to access information to services immediately and privately, from the comfort of their own homes."

Stream IPTV uses a combination of video and text based content, targeted to different people according to their needs.
