Ireland’s telco eircom launches its eVision TV offering over fibre with Netgem

NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE — Netgem, a technology provider of innovative video solutions for the connected home entertainment market, announced that eircom is starting rolling out today its new eVision TV service based on Netgem’s technologies, in Ireland over its fibre network.

eVision represents greater choice for Irish customers who, until now, have only had the option of more expensive TV packages. TV viewers can now choose a service that offers their favourite channels as part of a unique eircom bundle.

With eVision, customers can choose from a wide range of packages containing add on services including HD Channels, Sky Sports and Sky Movies and Setanta Sports.
Add on channel packs are available with only a one month commitment and no downgrade fees. Customers can also watch all their eVision channels in a second or third room with Multiroom boxes – only €5 per month per room.

Netgem is providing eircom with its state-of-the-art TV solution, offering a customer friendly Programme Guide to access a large variety of content. The flexibility of Netgem’s open SDK, will enable eircom to develop a wealth of services and an exciting TV experience. The eVision TV service is delivered on the compact and cost-effective Netgem 7700 series STB as well as on the PVR mediacenter 8000 series allowing eircom to offer both main room and Multiroom options.

Christophe Aulnette, President of Netgem International, commented: “We are delighted to partner with eircom in the launch of eVision.
