Millicom has launched its next generation TV service, Tigo ONE TV, in Colombia, and the international telco plans to gradually deploy the service to all of its Latin American markets.
Tigo ONE TV integrates traditional linear television content with OTT platforms such as HBO, Crackle, Fox, YouTube, and others, as well as VoD. The service is the result of a partnership between Millicom and TiVo, which developed an entry-level product, tailor-made for Millicom customers in emerging markets.
Mauricio Ramos, CEO of Millicom, commented: “We are very excited to work with TiVo to bring the most innovative products to our customers in Latin America. We have been accelerating the build-out of our high-speed cable networks in Latin America, toward our goal of passing 15 million homes, and this is a good example of the type of partnership that we are seeking to sustain our rapid growth by offering a superior user experience to our customers.”
