Viaccess-Orca, a provider of content protection and advanced data solutions, has announced that Orange Moldova has launched a new convergent TV offering (TV, Internet, mobile) using Viaccess-Orca’s Adaptive Sentinel Conditional Access System (CAS) along with STBs from Hi-Global Technology and CI+ modules from Neotion.
Following the recent acquisition of Moldova’s leading cable operator, Sun Communications, Orange needed a cost-effective and streamlined way to expand its service portfolio to include fixed internet and pay-TV subscriptions. Viaccess-Orca’s Adaptive Sentinel CAS fulfills those requirements, ensuring secure distribution and a fast time-to-market for Orange Moldova’s new unified TV offering.
“Our goal with acquiring Sun Communications was to offer our customers more than just mobile services. Since launching our new converged TV service, our mobile customers have access to our offering of 171 channels, 26 of which are in HD,” said Ludmila Nistorica, Chief Marketing Officer at Orange Moldova. “Working with Viaccess-Orca and our CPE partners greatly expedited this process, helping us to quickly enter the pay-TV market and launch innovative new services, including convergent offerings, for an unmatched user experience. Ultimately, this partnership strengthens our leadership in the market.”
