February 2010 - Deutsche Telekom is now offering new interactive functions for LIGA total!, the Bundesliga soccer service from Entertain. The VideoTicker, live league tables and the goal scorer list provide Entertain customers with a wealth of information about the current match day whenever they choose. The exciting new functions have been enabled by leading IPTV software developer emuse.
During the current match day, the LIGA total! interaktiv VideoTicker informs all soccer fans about the latest events such as goals, red cards and penalties either as a widget display at the bottom edge of the monitor or in full-screen mode. Watching one match live and following another in widget format is no longer an issue. At the press of a button, the viewer can decide whether they want to have a replay of the action or continue watching the ongoing game. In addition, the VideoTicker provides Entertain customers with preliminary reports, interviews and highlights from the Bundesliga and second division games.
"Working again with Deutsche Telekom on the Bundesliga soccer service allowed us to consult from inception on the technical solutions and therefore develop impressive new functionality" said Donal O'Connor at emuse. "Entertain are committed to offering their subscribers an increasing range of high-quality options which enables emuse to continue to showcase our software in Germany." he commented.
LIGA total! interaktiv also offers attractive functions such as a live league table, the latest overview of results as well as the goal scorer list with video clips of all goals at the press of a button.
Each of these functions can be viewed either during the match as a widget display via the color buttons of the Entertain remote control or in full-screen mode. The new, faster and more user friendly service is already proving to be a subscription success.
