nangu.TV provides the largest operator in Slovakia, Orange Slovensko, a.s., with enhanced TV features including VoD, TV Archive, and multiscreen delivery

PRAGUE, Czech Republic — Orange Slovensko, a.s., the leading telco operator on the market uses the nangu.TV Media Platform for IPTV and OTT delivery. “žWith the growing demand for interactive television and more viewing possibilities, Orange sought a proven solution to bring to the market,” says Product Manager at Orange, Martin Hainzl.

Orange offers their customers TV with value added features, which gives them more options and comfort than classic live TV. The VoD selection stores 50 movie titles, accessible on multiple screens: TV, PC, Smartphone or tablet. The TV Archive allows playback of content up to 7 days in the past. Customers can utilize the time shift feature to browse content already aired and watch it at their leisure with pause, play and star t over commands. They have flexibility in watching television on the go with the newly released applications for both iOS and Android devices. The nangu.TV solution allows operators to stay ahead of competition by giving cutomers the chance to be in control of how they watch TV.

nangu.TV worked in cooperation with the German set top box manufacturer, iP4.tv GmbH, on the development of hybrid STBs, specifically for the Orange implementation. These STBs combine the DVB-S2 satellite broadcasts with digital functionalities of IPTV. This enables the delivery of value added services to the screen. Broadcasts are secured by Motorola Mobility’s SecureMedia.

Orange made available these interactive services in September. The next phase of implementation will make the TV packages accessible to an even larger audience.
