EWE launches “ZuhauseTV” with ocilion

  • On-premises complete solution for new IPTV offer

The Oldenburg energy and telecommunications company EWE is advancing its TV offering and has decided to partner with ocilion. The on-premises complete solution tailored by ocilion includes 4K set top boxes, first and second screen apps as well as extensive features and content packages.

“We want to offer our customers individual products for everything to do with their home. With our new home TV product, we are taking our IPTV offering to a new level. It complements our existing home portfolio for everything to do with electricity, gas, mobile communications and the Internet and delivers a comprehensive entertainment package right into your own four walls,” explains Andreas Mayer, Head of the Energy & TC Products Business Unit at EWE.

The IPTV solution from ocilion enables, for example, recording in the cloud, time-shifted television (replay) and shines with an intuitive user interface in the EWE design. In conjunction with a high-performance fiber optic connection from EWE, customers receive a future-proof TV product. The new home TV service is due to start this year.

Hans Kühberger, CEO of ocilion: “EWE is one of the largest energy companies in Germany, already supplies 700,000 customers with telecommunications services and is investing even more in the fiber optic infrastructure. We are therefore very pleased to have won EWE as an innovative partner in order to establish a long-term, competitive product on the market together with ‘ZuhauseTV’ with our customized on-premises solution. The IPTV complete solution is hosted in the infrastructure of EWE and enables the ongoing expansion of the offer with new functions and additional content – entirely in accordance with the needs of the end customer.”
