3 Screen Solutions (3SS) and KAONMEDIA have announced that Nordic pay-TV giant Allente has launched its next-generation super-aggregated TV services for Scandinavia on an Android TV STB, supporting DTH satellite, IPTV and OTT.
KAON BCM72180 PVR STBs (set-top box) will be available to Allente’s 1 million+ subscribers, enabled by KAON middleware, NAGRA Media CAS, Broadcom 72180 SoC and based on 3SS UX (user experience) technology.
