Deutsche Telekom launches first set top box powered by Zenterio OS, as part of ambitious multi-year programme to transform how viewers watch TV and video on demand internationally.
Stockholm, Sweden, 5 July 2017 – Deutsche Telekom Group, the second largest multinational operator in Europe, is working with Zenterio, a leading TV technology and services provider, on an ambitious project to modernise the TV subscriber experience in Germany with one of the market’s largest deployments of IPTV set top boxes.
Deutsche Telekom is transforming the customer experience with international rollouts currently ongoing in Greece, Romania and Croatia.
Powered by Zenterio OS, the first commercial launch in Germany represents a major milestone. This deployment is part of a brand new Deutsche Telekom offer for an entry level IPTV subscription package, providing around 100 TV channels, including 22 in HD quality, from just €2 per month.
More launches are planned in the near future with substantial potential uptake: such as UHD and Satellite.
Jörgen Nilsson, CEO of Zenterio, said “In today’s highly competitive market, the customer experience is all important. Viewing habits are changing incredibly quickly as more screens are added to the mix and on-demand services become increasingly intuitive. We’re incredibly proud to be working with Deutsche Telekom to empower the TV operator to drive better TV experiences.”
Zenterio OS is a proven platform for set top boxes from entry level to high end, returning control to the operator with full software independence on client devices. The OS supports a state of the art feature set that will deliver advanced data collection and intelligent backend integration with any set-top box model across different countries, vendors and ecosystems.
With future deployments, Deutsche Telekom will benefit from faster time to market for new services.
Nilsson concludes, “This latest announcement marks the culmination of five years of collaboration with Deutsche Telekom and cements Zenterio’s position as a full-service provider of technology, value added services and consultancy for the TV industry.”
