UK broadband provider Orange is set to revive its broadband TV ambitions, according to reports.

The firm, which recently merged with the UK arm of T-Mobile, hopes to take advantage of its new infrastructure agreement with BT to launch IPTV services.

Just last month, Orange surprised the broadband industry by outsourcing its fixed-line network to BT, which has enabled it to gain access to next-generation technology.

Now, according to the Times, the internet service provider may look to utilise the faster download speeds available by offering online streaming services.

Orange first expressed an interest in such an initiative three years ago, but the project gradually slipped down its agenda.

BT, Virgin Media and Sky already operate broadband-enabled television services in the UK, but it seems Orange has not given up on entering the market.
