ADB Supports New Triple-play Service in Greece with IPTV and Broadband Solutions

GENEVA, Switzerland — Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB) (SIX: ADBN) today announced that Greek service provider Cyta Hellas has gone live with 3play, a triple-play solution featuring ADB’s IPTV, voice and broadband technologies. The Cytavision pay-TV service began operations in December 2013, bundled with fixed internet and telephony services. It features Alcatel-Lucent’s IPTV platform running on ADB’s hybrid HD set-top boxes.

Cyta Hellas uses ADB’s Epicentro-PMP suite of remote management applications to remotely manage the entire home network and fix any issues before the subscriber notices, reducing support costs.

“Τhe flexibility and affordability of ADB’s feature-packed solutions, is a major component of our comprehensive and differentiated 3play solution with voice, internet and TV packages starting from just 19 Euros a month. Judging by the high level of interest to date, we have hit upon a winning formula,” said Christos Kolitsidas, Head of Products and Services, Cyta Hellas.

“We have delivered digital TV solutions to Cyta in Cyprus for many years so we believe it is a mark of our success that Cyta has extended the partnership to encompass its new triple play operations on mainland Greece. With a strong surge in subscribers, it seems that Cyta Hellas has found a sweet spot in the Greek market for a cost-effective triple-play service,” said Peter Balchin, CEO at ADB.
