Viaplay launches TV streaming services with Netgem
June 12, 2012
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.
