3 Screen Solutions (3SS), a provider of software solutions for STBs and multiscreen entertainment, has announced that Yes, the pay-TV subsidiary of Israeli telco Bezeq, has incorporated 3SS technology in its STINGTV streaming service.
3SS has developed a full operator application in both English and Hebrew for STINGTV, part of the Yes Television portfolio, to offer a range of features to subscribers including VoD, live TV, mini EPG, with restart and parental controls, among others. The new app is also engineered to accommodate navigation to both right and left to smoothly support the UX in both languages.
The new 3SS-developed STINGTV app is for viewing on Samsung, Tizen and Web OS smart TVs.
“As we migrate our service to become all-IP by 2026, we are steadfastly committed to delivering the very best user experience possible to our subscribers; 3SS is a recognised leader in UX innovation, and we are excited to share a feature-rich next-gen experience with our viewers,” said Itzhak Elyakim, VP Engineering and CTO at Yes.
“Yes has been demonstrating world-class, customer-centric innovation for decades,” added Kai-Christian Borchers, 3SS Managing Director. “We are extremely proud to collaborate with Synamedia to help yes deliver ever more advanced TV entertainment to Israel’s consumers.”
