BT Vision halfway through Mediaroom exit


Published: 1 February, 2013


Chatting this week to UK video middleware specialist Oregan, we confirmed the details of the story we ran early last year about Mediaroom being kicked out of BT Vision, a fact that was recently denied to us by Mediaroom.

Mediaroom has made a few new friends and has won over Telefonica to its cause lately and has added handfuls of new customers this year, after a dearth of new business for about 4 years. It has also launched its first major upgrade.

Back in February last year Faultline put out headlines that said that BT Vision would be the first major tier one operator to dump Microsoft Mediaroom, and we revealed a new architecture post-Mediaroom, based on a Linux set top from Pace, a browser and middleware stack from UK company Oregan Networks and a new cataloging system and user interface from Australian TV software house Massive Interactive, with recommendations coming from UK company The Filter and content management from thePlatform.

The only thing different is that the Massive involvement is very much less than we suggested, because BT's team took over the UI development the company told us.
