Netflix & Amazon Prime Video on Freebox Revolution thanks to Wyplay
MARSEILLE, France — Wyplay, a global TV Professional Services and Video Platform Solutions provider, and Free SAS, a leading triple play provider in France, announce that the “Freebox Revolution” – the best-selling set-top box (STB) launched in 2012 – now includes the famous American SVOD services: Netflix & Amazon Prime Video.
Free is globally recognized for their talented and highly skilled engineers. Wyplay is honored to have been selected for its expertise on 3rd party application integration on legacy and new STBs. Despite a complex technical environment based on a legacy Intel TV processor, Wyplay’s teams worked in collaboration with the Free teams and managed to deploy Netflix and Amazon Prime Video on time on the Freebox Revolution.
All Free subscribers now have access to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video from their STB. “These projects were complex on legacy operator technology components, implying specific developments and integrations. By choosing Wyplay to bring Netflix and Prime Video to their customers, Free is consolidating its position as a super-aggregator TV operator.” said Jacques Bourgninaud, CEO of Wyplay.
“These successful missions with Free reflects the strategic diversification we launched in 2018 where our TV expertise is now proposed on all multiple TV operating systems including: Comcast/RDK, Google/Android TV, Wyplay/Frog and proprietary solutions.”
