Have you got an excellent idea for an iPTV concept? Well, then, you could do worse than entering Deutsche Telekoms iPTV competition with 1 million euros in prize money. iPTV is gearing up, but I believe we should be looking at what can be done with iPTV that will set it apart from other means…Read more Time to get going
