The new hybrid multiscreen offering, based on Android TV OS Operator Tier, is available via DVB-C (cable), DVB-T (terrestrial), IPTV and on all OTT platforms.
Elisa Elamus features Google Play Movies and TV, Amazon Prime Video, Viaplay and YouTube among a total of 150+ channels. The service is enabled by 3SS’ 3READY Product Framework, Technicolor PEARL set-top box, with t4h.

For this project, 3SS delivered a unified experience on all apps supporting a wide range of devices with PEARL STB at the nexus. Further apps enable viewing on Web, Android TV sets, as well as Android and iOS mobile phones and tablets. 3SS-engineered apps for Samsung Tizen and LG webOS smart TVs will launch soon.
Thanks to 3READY Control Center, this wide array of Elisa Elamus apps can be managed in a unified way, including content curation, all from a single location. Meanwhile, subscribers are benefitting from 3READY-powered UX (user experience) harmonised across all their devices.
