Vodafone Germany has selected Rotterdam-based technology vendor Metrological to integrate OTT apps into its GigaTV pay-TV service.
Metrological has worked with a number of cable operators, including Comcast and Liberty Global, to enable the integration of popular OTT services including Netflix natively on the set-top.
The Metrological Application Platform includes a back-office product suite for onboarding, monetising and optimising the life cycle of web and native apps across set-tops. The platform supports features including unified search and second-screen support. Vodafone Germany is also able to source content from the Metrological App Library, which offers more than 300 OTT apps.
“Vodafone Germany’s next-gen GigaTV offering gives TV subscribers easy access to premium OTT services and niche, personalised content. This aligns with Metrological’s vision to integrate the TV and app experience in one single view,” said Thijs Bijleveld, senior VP of sales and marketing at Metrological.
