Bouygues Telecom takes B.TV+ to Samsung’s The Freestyle

French service provider Bouygues Telecom has launched its TV service in the form of an app integrated with Samsung’s lifestyle projector The Freestyle by Samsung.

The move comes two years after the telco launched its first triple-play offering that included TV in the form of the B.TV+ app integrated into Samsung’s smart TV range. BBox Smart TV customers can now benefit from the availability of B.TV+ on The Freestyle.

Connected to Bouygues’ WiFi offering, now available via a WiFi 6E-enabled modem, The Freestyle gives customers access to all B.TV+ services, including over 180 TV channels, catch-up TV and cloud recording.

Customers can retain access to the service on the main TV in their homes via the Multi B.Tv+ offering launched in April.

Bouygues Telecom said that customers would be able to watch a movie or series in cinema conditions in the home while another household member watched a sports fixture on the main TV, for example.

Samsung launched The Freestyle at this year’s CES. The device is a compact 830g projecrtor that can be moved from one location in the home to another to project a full HD video experience on a wall or ceiling. It includes the same functionality as a Tizen OS-powered Samsung smart TV.

Bouygues launch on The Freestyle also comes two months after rival service SFR coupled its TV and broadband boxes with an offer that included The Freestyle projector, allowing customers who sighed up to a 24-month contract to buy the device for a discounted price of €399 – as opposed to €999 – and a monthly fee of €8.
