Amino, the global media and entertainment technology solutions provider, has secured a new contract to deliver an ’upcycling’ programme for T-Mobile Netherlands that will transform the operator’s installed base of legacy TV devices to meet the expectations of today’s connected consumer.
T-Mobile will deploy AminoOS software, which allows already deployed devices to be ‘upcycled’ to deliver an upgraded TV experience – including integration with the latest media players – while also extending the investment in an operator’s installed base.
Marieke Snoep CCO at T-Mobile said: “This is an exciting time for T-Mobile and we are pleased to work with a trusted and experienced partner in Amino. The AminoOS solution allows us to cost-effectively offer all our customers a leading-edge TV service that meets their demand for advanced capabilities in a multiscreen, multidevice world.”
Currently, T-Mobile provides mobile and broadband services to four million customers with over 200,000 subscribers to its T-Mobile Thuis (Home) TV service which combines both broadcast and OTT feeds. As part of the contract, T-Mobile will also deploy additional Amino Aria HEVC-enabled devices to further drive new subscriber growth.
Donald McGarva, Amino’s CEO, added: “Our ‘upcycling’ capabilities are a market-proven solution for operators who wish to enable all customers to benefit from next-generation TV experiences without having to replace existing set-top boxes.
