Leveraging Nagra’s experience in Android-based OTT and hybrid TV deployments, it combines what the company says is a highly secure and fully featured ecosystem of technologies, partners and services to assist pay-TV operators in hybrid and OTT deployments and help them successfully execute on the Android TV journey.
