Taiwan: Anevia expands HiNet OTT network

May 24, 2018

Anevia, a provider of OTT and IPTV software solutions, is helping HiNet further expand its extensive TV network. HiNet is the data communications business group of Chunghwa Telecoms, the largest telecommunications company in Taiwan – and the deal forms a key part of Anevia’s strategic expansion into the APAC region.

HiNet already broadcasts across 280 channels, with around one hundred thousand OTT users. However, with demand for channels continuing to grow, it has selected Anevia’s NEA-DVR software to add further content delivery network capacity to its infrastructure.

“Anevia’s NEA-DVR solution was exactly what we were looking for to provide us with the agility essential to address today’s fast-evolving markets. We are very impressed by the speed in which it could be implemented and how simple it is to use,” said Peter Chou, Section Chief of HiNet.

“Through our regional partnership with WeiTech, not only are we able to grow our presence within APAC but we’re pleased that we will now also be able to support operators like HiNet in providing a seamless and satisfying viewing experience for its viewers. Our NEA-DVR satisfies the growing flexibility needed to meet the demands of the market and to support content delivery, including 4K, while still accommodating SD and HD output,” adds Antoine Hugoo, APAC Sales Director Telco & Media.
