Ericsson is enabling Sweden’s largest cable television operator, Com Hem, to deliver new advanced entertainment services to its consumers via an interactive TV platform. The new on-demand services will mean viewers can catch up on their favourite TV programmes anytime.
The on-demand TV platform supports a wide range of advanced services, such as VOD, catch-up and start-over TV programmes and music on-demand, and also includes a flexible interactive portal for Com Hem’s new Landlord-Tenant service. The rollout of the new services has started, with around 500,000 subscribers reached by December 2009.
Com Hem has also revealed that it has chosen Espial IPTV middleware for its next generation digital TV and VOD services.
