Migration of O2 Czech Republic customers to nangu.TV platform completedWednesday, May 14th, 2014
PRAGUE, Czech Republic — nangu.TV, the pioneering media platform provider for IPTV and OTT services, has announced that it has completed the migration of O2 customers to the nangu.TV Media Platform. nangu.TV began working with O2 last summer when the operator re-launched its O2 TV service in the Czech Republic, providing customers with additional features such as time shift TV, recording, remote functionality and video-on-demand, all driven by nangu.TV’s Media Platform.
The timeline of the project was split into a number of phases beginning with the implementation of the nangu.TV platform for new O2 TV subscribers via IP4TV set-top boxes. The other big challenge was the integration of ADB3800 set-boxes used by O2’s existing customer base of more than 130,000 households. The migration of all existing customers from the old platform to the nangu.TV platform began in October 2013 and was completed in March 2014.
David Duron, Marketing Director, O2 Czech Republic says, “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. 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 nangu.TV Media Platform eliminates the need for investment in complex backend infrastructure and enables services to be deployed far more quickly. The platform goes much further than traditional IPTV systems allowing operators like O2 TV to also deliver content over any internet connection to the multiscreen environment and add sophisticated features like advanced search and recommendation engine. Because of its seamless adaptive streaming functionality, it frequently checks the connection type and speed for both linear and non-linear content and adapts accordingly for quality optimisation.
Jakub Kabourek, nangu.TV’s CEO adds, “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.”
