In documents sent to potential suppliers, Mediaset has revealed plans to launch television via the internet from December 2009. Initially channels will be accessible only via a PC with a set-top box for TV viewing planned for 2010.

Mediaset plans to launch Mediaset Web TV in December 2009, with a premium service being added in March 2010. There are also plans for a video-on-demand offering.

In November 2010 the company intends to offer a Mediaset set-top box, produced and sold by third parties, for viewing the service directly on a television.
