3 Screen Solutions (3SS) was one of the partners involved in the launch of a hybrid Android TV service from Nordic pay-TV provider Allente via direct-to-home satellite, IPTV and OTT.
The launch was also supported by Broadcom, Kaon Media, and Nagra Media. The service will have a phased rollout throughout the Nordic region in 2022, starting with Sweden. PVR functionality will be rolled out later this year.
Allente continues to build on its first 3SS-enabled project, OnePlace, the satellite and OTT service that Canal Digital launched in February 2018. Allente was later formed from the merger of Viasat Consumer and Canal Digital in May 2020. The operator offers TV services and broadband to customers in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Jon Espen Nergård, CTO of Allente, said: “We’re very excited to now offer our next-generation service to subscribers via satellite, IPTV and OTT streaming. We thank our amazing partners Kaon and 3SS, and all our technology collaborators, in helping us provide our customers with a rich array of content, including their favourite apps, all wrapped in a world-class 3SS-enabled experience and delivered on Kaon’s powerful STB.”
