PARIS -- Further demonstrating its IPTV leadership, Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) customer TDC, Denmark's leading telecommunications provider and TV operator, has rolled-out a nationwide commercial IPTV service. With the recent TDC TVlaunch, TDC has inaugurated Denmark's largest and most state-of-the-art interactive TV network with service available to more than 1.6 million households.

Building on Alcatel-Lucent’s commitment to support service providers in delivering a truly converged TV experience, this critical market milestone follows TDC’s selection of Alcatel-Lucent’s IPTV offering, including the Microsoft® IPTV Edition software platform, in 2006. Alcatel-Lucent has established a leading position in interactive TV services, and already enables TV, video and music services for more than 110 fixed and mobile service providers around the world.

The solution delivered to TDC includes comprehensive Alcatel-Lucent services integration as well as the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform. Based on this solution, TDC TV subscribers will benefit from an enriched entertainment experience with broadband access to 35 television channels, an electronic program guide, digital recorder with pause feature, and access to more than 200 movie titles available at their convenience via video on demand technology. The network is also HDTV-ready.

"The new generation of TDC TV is one of TDC's most important growth projects within broadband for many years. This is one example of how broadband will be playing a still greater role in our everyday lives in the future," said Gert Rieder, President of TDC Solutions. "We deliver telephony, Internet, and TV through one and the same wall outlet. This is clearly the most user-friendly solution in the market because it is interactive and offers convenient access to individual content preferences such as on-demand movie rentals."
