Orange has recently launched a new mobile TV offering for its iPhone owning subscribers in France. The deal includes a native iPhone app called “TV from Orange,” which allows interested users to access to around 60 TV channels such as French national, TNT and thematic channels. The carrier is saying the streaming will work even on the first gen iPhones, although we’re kinda sceptical EDGE can handle all that data.
As for the pricing, the “TV option” service is available starting from 6 EUR per month, or on a pay-as-you-go basis: by volume (1 EUR cent/10Kb), or per session (50 EUR cents/20 minutes).
The same release also talks about the new “Origami Star plans for the iPhone,” that start from 42 EUR per month and include unlimited Internet access, unlimited Visual Voicemail, unlimited WiFi in mainland France across the 30,000 Orange Wi-Fi access hotspots, unlimited access to more than 20 TV channels, unlimited SMS across all mainland operators from 8pm to 8am and at weekends, unlimited calls across all operators from 8pm to 8am and at weekends (3h plan or higher)…
