OS bearing gifts to Greek market

Posted On: 18th September 2017

A topic of discussion with visitors on the Zenterio stand is how it recently completed the migration to Zenterio OS of the first 85,000 legacy set-top boxes for COSMOTE TV, the OTE Group’s pay-TV platform. COSMOTE TV began delivering set-top boxes based on Zenterio OS in 2015.

The service, rebranded as COSMOTE TV in November 2016, is available over both satellite and IP networks, and now has more than 503,000 subscribers across Greece.

In 2016, COSMOTE TV introduced its hybrid service, becoming the first operator in Greece to combine broadcast television with content delivered over the internet. Hybrid subscribers gained access to movies and TV series on-demand plus catch-up TV, all delivered through their STBs.

OTE and Zenterio worked together to enable these features on the COSMOTE TV platform, with Zenterio developing the updates to the user interface as well as providing the box operating system. In addition, Zenterio acted as the primary system integrator for the project.
