Slovak Telekom, T-Mobile Czech upgrade with 24i

April 17, 2024

24i, the video streaming platform expert, gas announced that Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile Czech Republic, part of the Deutsche Telekom (DT) Group, have extended their engagement with 24i to feature new value-added content libraries, including synthetic channels, and streamline the user experience across their current streaming services T-MobileTV GO, Magio GO and Digi GO.

“From the beginning, 24i has been a key partner to ensure we are delivering the best possible experience for our subscribers,” said Marcel Satanek, TV & Entertainment Tribe Lead at Slovak Telekom. “Because of their video delivery, user experience and local market expertise, the 24i team was instrumental in developing a super-aggregation platform that meets today’s consumer expectations. We are already talking about the next round of exciting new capabilities.”

With 24i Video Cloud, Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile Czech Republic are rolling out a unique deployment strategy that includes:

Super-aggregation: The video services are aggregating leading third-party services like Voyo and Canal+, offering a wider range of content to subscribers. Discussions are underway to bring even more international services through other partnerships already fully interoperable with 24i.

Synthetic channels: Similar to FAST channels, but the operators have the option to assemble them without ads. This innovative approach aims to add further value to current subscribers by providing access to a wider content catalogue through these types of virtual channels.

Player 2.0: The DT companies and 24i collaborated on a new player look and feel with enhanced functionalities.

Streamlined user experience: 24i’s Backstage empowers the operators to manage user profiles, logins, menus and content carousels, creating a more intuitive user journey.

“Working closely with Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile has shown that 24i provides the right balance of pre-configured modules, flexible business model APIs and innovative development expertise with local knowledge for a great user experience,” added Donald McGarva, CEO of 24i and its parent company Aferian. “Our ongoing partnership showcases our commitment to deliver solutions that empower our customers to excel in today’s competitive streaming landscape.”
