Vianeos has created a new user experience and interface for Batelco TV, the largest telecommunications company in Bahrain. The new Batelco TV app is now available on the operator’s legacy Android Open Source Project set-top boxes.


Vianeos: The OTT service offers a subscription to the StarzPlay VoD platform 

The new UI is said to enhance the user experience via a powerful and intuitive graphical layout that is designed to make features easy to use. Customers can manage any multimedia content distributed over the Batelco IPTV network with more than 200 channels, 65+ in HD.

The OTT application has been developed on Android TV and Apple TV with a subscription allowing TV viewers to access various services. Among them, the subscription to the VoD platform StarzPlay has been integrated to offer a vast catalogue of on-demand content in English and Arabic.

Bachir Ghalayini, associate director at Vianeos, said: “We are glad to provide Batelco with an IPTV and OTT platform, fully revamped and viewer oriented. Both teams are proud of the outcome in terms of user experience and design. With fierce competition in the IPTV and OTT space, a video platform adapted to viewers’ needs make sense for many operators.”
