Netgem, an expert in connected home technologies and solutions, has been selected by Viaplay to supply its new Viaplay Box. The Viaplay box is a hybrid STB which offers viewers a wide range of OTT delivered premium TV channels, free to air terrestrial channels and the full Viaplay online service in one single set-top box. Viaplay is a leading online pay-TV service in the Nordic region, and offers OTT delivery of premium TV, movies and sports content to anyone with a broadband connection on multiple devices, now including the Viaplay box in Sweden.
Viaplay will use the Viaplay box to broaden its Swedish offering, and to make linear and on-demand pay-TV content, including TV series, film and sports, available directly on a TV using a remote control. The launch extends the number of platforms for consumers to access the Viaplay service from personal computers, tablets, smartphones and connected TVs to the Viaplay Box, using a single log-in.
