BellSouth logoWhile SBC and others are launching IPTV offerings in 2006, BellSouth isn't sitting on their hands. The company is planning for a 2007 launch, which may provide time for lessons learned as well as strategic partner choices. By mid-year, BellSouth expects to trial IPTV with over a thousand folks. Currently, the technical trials are "aligned" with the Microsoft TV platform, but there's no guarantees just yet. Although the company denies it, we're thinking that they're in a "wait and see" mode to watch other providers using the Microsoft platform.

What do you think: smart move for BellSouth to wait or will 2007 show them behind the IPTV curve?
