MADRID, Spain -- Ya.com (T-Online Telecommunications Spain SAU), owned by Deutsche Telekom, launched its new IPTV service to consumers in Spain based on the Microsoft IPTV Edition software platform. The new service delivers a wide range of functions and applications that to date have not been available on any platform in Spain, including pausing live programmes, parental controls, an interactive electronic programme guide and fast channel zapping for a fluid and easy-to-use experience. In addition, it offers enough internal storage for up to 50 hours of recorded content, giving consumers complete control to view the programmes they want at the times they want to watch them.

Ya.com invested over one year in designing and establishing its IPTV technology infrastructure, which is based on the stable and flexible system developed by Microsoft TV partner Alcatel-Lucent. The platform is supported on a network infrastructure that permits advanced services above and beyond high speed internet access or TV and video on demand, all services that require high transmission speeds of up to 20Mbit/s.

Today, nine of these service providers including AT&T, BT, T-Online France and Swisscom are now delivering personalised and connected TV and entertainment experiences to consumers.

Ya.com TV offers a basic package of 24 channels which will be expanded to include TDT channels and be managed through a decoder and internal hard disk offering 80 GB of storage and a double TDT synthesizer. The platform delivers a variety of programmes and content from National Geographic, Cartoon Networks, Nickelodeon, CNN, Paramount Comedy and MTV amongst others which in total captures 65 percent of the Spanish audience interested in themed content.
