CANAL+ launches next-generation service in Poland and strengthens its partnership with ADB
- CANAL+ Polska subscribers can enjoy a premium entertainment experience with Live TV, on-demand and streaming content through CANAL+ hybrid set-top boxes
GENEVA, Switzerland and WARSAW, Poland — CANAL+, the leading Polish Pay-TV operator has selected ADB’s graphyne3™ Pay-TV Management System and STB client software to launch its next-generation of service to its subscribers. As part of this launch, the ADB graphyne3™ user interface has been customized to match the style of the CANAL+ online service.
The new solution offers CANAL+ subscribers an upgrade to currently deployed set-top boxes to the most up-to-date functionality. This includes Catch-up TV which allows easy access to already transmitted video content without the need to record it, the restart of ongoing programs, and access to a vast number of online video libraries and streaming applications such as Netflix (other SVOD services are soon to follow). All these on top of the traditional satellite Pay-TV, using a modern graphyne3™ UX framework.
With the new graphyne3™ system and a fully configurable user interface, CANAL+ can constantly adapt the experience to the users’ needs and according to its business strategy. The operator gets a perfect tool, specifically designed to provide its customers with personalized content recommendations.
The new service will first be available to some subscribers using UHD CANAL+ STBs as a pilot deployment which starts in December this year. In Q1 2022, all users of UHD set-top boxes should receive the update to the new functionalities and CANAL+ online user experience.
Commenting on the new deployment, Jacek Galik, SVP Sales at ADB, stated the following: “The long-term relationship we have with CANAL+ is a great example of continuous evolution and advanced development that adapts the already deployed set-top boxes to ever-changing market needs. Once again, we worked closely with the CANAL+ team to deliver modern and attractive edition of the operator’s service that all subscribers will appreciate. With the introduction of our graphyne3™ system for CANAL+, a leading Tier 1 operator, our expertise in Pay-TV systems and software integration is reaffirmed.”
“CANAL+ subscribers will soon get access to the modern solutions that combine traditional TV service with the world of VOD. This is a gigantic and important step for us, which will extend the functionalities of our top set-top boxes, and completely change the TV experience”, says Artur Przybysz, vice-president of the management board for sales at CANAL+ Polska.
