Kaltura has announced that its Cloud TV technology is supporting the launch of Vodafone TV in Greece, Romania and Portugal, joining Spain and Italy.
The multi-country telco-grade TV service relies on a common Cloud-based platform that allows Vodafone OpCos to launch the Vodafone TV service within their countries.
According to Kaltura, the platform allows Vodafone TV to launch in a new country in “as little as seven months.”
“Vodafone TV is proving that by combining the reliability, security and scalability of pay-TV together with the agility, economics and functionality of OTT, telcos can launch competitive Cloud TV services at scale,” said Wolfgang Zeller, head of Video Centre of Excellence at Vodafone. “We wanted to be first out of the blocks with a new genre of Cloud-based TV service that could be easily and cost-effectively replicated and launched in new Vodafone markets.
“With Kaltura we were able to launch a next generation Cloud TV solution that was fast to market, more cost-effective and most importantly increased our subscribers’ NPS. We are continuously impressed by how Kaltura’s technology, expertise and Cloud TV track record accelerate our joint vision for the future of TV.”
