The migration of O2 customers to nangu.TV’s Media Platform is now complete. The companies began working together last summer when O2 re-launched its TV service in the Czech Republic. Through its Media Platform, nangu.TV provides customers with additional features including time shift TV, recording, remote functionality and VOD.
The project began with the implementation of the nangu.TV platform for new O2 customers via IP4TV set-top boxes. ADB3800 boxes, used by existing O2’s existing customer base of over 130,000 households, were also included in the move. The migration of customers from the old platform to nangu.TV was completed this March.
“One of the big advantages of working with nangu.TV is the ability to implement its new HD GUI and all the advanced nonlinear services that nangu.TV’s platform provides for the ADB3800 set-top boxes,” said David Duron, marketing director, O2. “The platform enabled us to immediately migrate our O2 TV customers without them needing to exchange their set-top boxes, which is a huge advantage. ”
The Media Platform allows operators like O2 TV to deliver content over any internet connection to the multiscreen environment and add features such as advanced search and a recommendation engine. It frequently checks the connection type and speed for both linear and non-linear content and adapts accordingly.
Jakub Kabourek, nangu.TV’s CEO added: “The nangu.TV mission is to provide our customers with a great tool for interactive TV distribution and we strongly believe IPTV is the best way to do this. Customers in today’s multiscreen, connected world expect to have content everywhere, on demand and we’re delighted to be able to deliver that.”
