Qatar: Ooredoo turns to Metrological
December 2, 2015
Ooredoo has selected the Metrological Application Platform to launch and manage its cloud-based Mozaic TV app store. The Ooredoo-branded TV app store will go live on Ooredoo’s next generation STBs in Qatar.
Ooredoo’s Next Generation Mozaic TV is the leading TV entertainment service in Qatar, combining international, Arabic and Asian satellite packages, catch-up and premium-on-demand content onto a single platform. Ooredoo’s TV app store will be integrated into the Mozaic TV user experience, which combines existing native apps with an expanded app library of popular and local apps and OTT content. By deploying Metrological’s cloud-based TV app platform, Ooredoo will be able to offer customers a wider selection of apps than ever before. The Ooredoo app store will be available to Mozaic TV customers using next-generation STBs, with plans in place to expand the service to legacy devices and other new devices in the future.
“We pride ourselves on offering innovative features and world-class entertainment packages that give our customers access to all of their content in one place,” said Waleed Al Sayed, CEO, Ooredoo Qatar. “Ooredoo continues to deploy cutting-edge cloud solutions to deliver smart services for the people of Qatar, and this agreement with Metrological provides us with the flexibility to customise the portfolio of apps on offer, deliver an enhanced customer experience and gives us the scalability to continue to expand the digital universe of apps offered on Mozaic TV.”
