Software specialist 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) announced that German operator Tele Columbus has gone live with its next-generation hybrid STB service PŸUR TV, supported by the 3Ready product platform and NAGRA’s OpenTV video platform.
It was announced in May 2023 that Tele Columbus had chosen 3Ready to underpin the user experience for its next-generation entertainment offering.
The new PŸUR TV hybrid DVB-C (cable) plus OTT STB is based on Android TV Operator Tier and manufactured by Sagemcom.
According to 3SS, the launch of this set-top box kicks off a roadmap of multiscreen devices, including smart TVs and mobile devices, on which consumers will be able to access the service.
Google TV services such as Assistant for voice search and Play Store have also been integrated to simplify access to the content, apps and games in the Android TV ecosystem.
