“We are delighted and proud to collaborate with 3SS and KAON for this game changing platform and product,” said Gernot Jaeger, Green Streams Co-Founder & CEO. “3Ready’s ability to provide users with an intuitive and engaging entertainment experience is widely acknowledged, and KAON’s economical STB is perfect to deliver advanced Android TV services with leading edge UX,” he added. “We’re thus providing the market with a solution that has true ‘Best-in-Breed’ components and creating a world class IPTV & OTT service platform for operators.”
