Orange TV for iPhone, free of charge

Orange France is getting ready to offer a new and cool service for iPhone 3G subscribers, namely Orange TV.

Starting April 7, if you’re an Orange customer who has an Origami Star Plus plan of  at least €42, you’ll be able to watch 20 TV channels from Orange TV’s offering – for free, directly on your iPhone.   

For accessing all 64 Orange TV channels, you’ll have to add the TV Max option (€9 per month). 

The TV connection is made via Orange’s 3G network, and it’s said it can also work via EDGE, where 3G isn’t available.

Orange says the iPhone 3G’s battery should provide up to 3 hours of TV watching.

Most probably, the free Orange TV offering comes after the carrier lost iPhone exclusivity in France and, as a result, SFR and Bouygues Telecom can also sell the smartphone (they’ll do it starting April 8 and April 25, respectively).

Here’s a video with the Orange TV iPhone app:

No word yet if Orange will offer the free Orange TV iPhone service in other markets except France.

    Are we getting it in the U.S app store? I know they have announced a few innovative apps for iPhone in the U.S before. Would love to see some of the French TV channels. Brings back my memories of Paris during my alcatel days.
