NAGRA, the Kudelski Group digital TV business and independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, has announced that its QuickStart Hybrid solution is enabling a combined OTT and DTT offering for Vodafone España, a provider of unified communications services including voice, messaging, mobile data and fixed broadband services.
NAGRA’s end-to-end QuickStart Hybrid allows Vodafone Spain fixed line and mobile customers to enjoy a line-up of OTT TV content offered by a third party (Canal+ Yomvi) on the device of their choice – whether on TVs, personal computers or mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets – while providing access to a selection of DTT channels which will launch later this year. Vodafone Spain’s new offering, called Vodafone Box, delivers advanced third party (Canal+ Yomvi) services such as live TV, subscription VoD, transactional VoD, catch-up TV and a new user interface bundled in a SmarDTV HD set-top box.
“We wanted a technology that would allow us to bring premium services and applications to our customers quickly while giving us room to grow and innovate,” said Isaac Mendoza, Head of TV and Digital Services at Vodafone Spain. “NAGRA provides us with a solution that enables value-added services without compromising security or the consumer experience.”
