Tilgin AB isn't saying who exactly is taking possession of an order for 1,700 of its Mood 400 HDTV set-top-boxes in Southern Europe, but make no mistake, someone down there is readying a soft launch of IPTV services. According to a release from the equipment provider, one of its "global partners" is apparently looking to offer up end-to-end IPTV delivery to a "leading tier one operator." Said operator is supposed to go live with its soft launch by September of this year, but details beyond that are nonexistent. Sure, the waiting game is tough to play, but knowing that IPTV is on the way has to provide some comfort, yeah?
