Accedo powers Social TV app for Telecable
September 21, 2012
Accedo, an enabler of Smart TV and IPTV apps, has been selected to power social TV applications being launched by Spanish pay TV and triple play services provider Telecable.
The Telecable service enable its viewers to engage with social media directly on the TV, including reading feeds and sharing what they are watching through their Social Media Status Profile. Through the social TV integration viewers can also view and comment on pictures posted to social networks through the TV.
The service is a commercial deployment of Accedo’s Social Integration Toolkit, a software module which gives users the ability to engage with the application via Social Media services such as Facebook and Twitter directly on their TV.
