Set-top box software provider 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) said A1 Bulgaria, part of the A1 Telekom Austria Group, has gone live with a new app that enables the operator’s next-generation Xplore TV service to be viewed on Android TV sets.
3SS said the service launch kicks off phase two of a multi-country, multi-brand deployment of regionalised smart TV apps for the A1 Group. Bulgarians with Android TV sets and other compatible smart devices will now receive customised user experiences engineered by 3SS.
It follows the completion of phase one, in which 3SS delivered regionalised Xplore TV apps for Samsung Tizen and LG webOS connected TVs in Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, the Republic of North Macedonia, and Austria.
Metodi Mladenov, team leader, ICT projects and software development services for A1 Group team, A1 Bulgaria, said: “Our collaboration with 3SS allowed us to bring the first two of our phase one Xplore TV apps for the Bulgarian market to life in about eight months and now another four countries are live with Xplore TV apps for LG and Samsung TVs, exceptionally fast for such a multifaceted project. The brand new Android TV app for Bulgaria took only four months to develop.”
A1 Group has also deployed 3Ready Control Center, 3SS’ UX management and optimisation platform, and benefits from the supplier’s expertise and certification in modern agile development methodologies, including SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework).
