ABSTRACT
The article informs that Entone Inc. has arranged to incorporate in its own Internet protocol television (IPTV) set-top boxes, access to the company Vudu's content library. Earlier, Vudu's library was accessible only through its own box, sold at retail outlets. The deal is stated to relieve IPTV providers from conducting their own rights negotiations with content owners. Steve McKay, chief executive officer (CEO) of Entone, said that the move was affected by customer demands and not by vendors.
