Telenet has presented a sneak preview of its Yelo TV application, due to launch in early 2013.
Yelo TV makes it possible for Telenet customers to watch their favourite content on any screen in the house using a single service. TV recordings, personal photos, videos and music can be made available on any device.
Yelo TV is based on the user interface employed by Horizon, Liberty Global’s new TV platform. The concept and the intellectual rights were granted by NDS and LGI. The platform was then further developed and integrated together with Flemish technology partners. The convergence between Horizon and the operator’s local technology makes it possible for more than half of Telenet’s customers to download this new TV menu on their existing decoder.
“Telenet focuses on three elements when it comes to watching television: watch what you want, when you want and where you want, and be always assured of the best quality and the greatest user-friendliness,” said Inge Smidts, SVP residential marketing, in a statement.
“The Yelo application that we launched in 2010 was already a first step. With Yelo TV, Telenet is taking the next step, and we are creating an entirely new user experience. This is a new way of watching TV that responds to the customer’s need to watch his favourite content on any screen he wants. Watching television no longer stops at the TV set.
“Thanks to the latest technology, it is possible to connect different devices with each other and have the viewing experience flow seamlessly from one to the other, when and where the customer wants. Yelo TV ensures the same look and feel on all screens that the customer has, and creates an optimum television experience, with more interactivity and freedom.”
Yelo TV will be launched early in 2013. Both existing and new customers will have access to the new product.
