TalkTalk has announced details of its new platform, powered by CSG International, which will launch in early 2018.
The platform will integrate set-top box viewing, the TalkTalk TV Store and TalkTalk TV’s suite of mobile apps into a new unified platform, TalkTalk TV.
TalkTalk TV is also enhancing its multi-screen viewing experience with the new app which will be available on up to four iOS or Android enabled devices, online and via Chromecast.
The new platform is being powered by CSG International’s Ascendon platform, which is cloud based.
Will Ennett, acting managing director at TalkTalk TV, said: “With the internet and mobile changing the way our customers watch TV, we’ve tailored our service to suit their evolving needs. We’ve streamlined TalkTalk TV to create a more integrated and seamless experience across devices, making it even easier for customers to watch the entertainment they love whether at home or on the go.”
Kent Steffen, president of global OTT business at CSG International, added: “Together, TalkTalk and CSG have created a differentiated digital TV experience, aligned with consumer demand for access to video content anytime, anywhere, across devices. Paired with TalkTalk’s extensive content library, Ascendon creates an intuitive, multiscreen, personalised TV viewing experience for every TalkTalk consumer.”
