3 Screen Solutions (3SS) and SEI Robotics said Swedish operator Tele2 has gone live with its new TV Hub Mini, which is a 4K dongle for over-the-top (OTT) TV with a user experience (UX) based on the 3SS 3Ready platform.
3SS said this is its first major operator dongle deployment. Tele2 devised the new Android TV-based OTT offering to satisfy subscribers’ need for the latest TV experience, combining linear with OTT. The SEI Robotics 4K dongle delivers Netflix, and many other streaming apps and TV channels.
Niclas Rosendahl, Director of Entertainment at Tele2, said the new TV Hub Mini offers an even easier solution for customers as it comes with a dongle without cables that works via Wi-Fi.
“Compromising on quality was out of the question; so we selected a top-spec SEI Robotics device, and once again we turned to the UX experts at 3SS,” Rosendahl said.
As with earlier 3SS deployments for Tele2, the OTT dongle’s UX features an Android TV custom launcher based on the 3Ready product framework.
