Nordic DTH operator Canal Digital has launched what it describes as “game changing” in terms of next-generation TV.
OnePlace is built on Google’s open ecosystem Android TV and allows users “seemless integration” between streaming and live TV.
Users will have direct access to Google’s Android TV universe, built in Chromecast, Google’s voice search and bluetooth remote control.
“We are doing something we have never done before,” said Ragnar Kårhus, CEO of Canal Digital. “We are moving from a closed solution, where customers only can view content provided by us, to an open solution based on Android TV.
“To meet today’s and the future’s user needs from our customers, a seamless access to both direct and streamed content is essential.
“With OnePlace, we can also provide our customers with personal recommendations on relevant content among the 28,000 titles we have available in our streaming services, in addition to what is on live TV.”
