It began working with O2 last summer, when the operator re-launched its O2 TV service, providing customers with additional features such as time shift TV, recording, remote functionality and video-on-demand, all driven by nangu.TV’s Media Platform.
The timeline of the project was split into a number of phases beginning with the implementation of the nangu.TV platform for new O2 TV subscribers via IP4TV set-top boxes. The other big challenge was the integration of ADB3800 set-boxes used by O2’s existing customer base of more than 130,000 households. The migration of all existing customers from the old platform to the nangu.TV platform began in October 2013 and was completed this March.
David Duron, marketing director, O2 said, “One of the big advantages of working with nangu.TV is the ability to implement its new HD GUI and all the advanced nonlinear services that nangu.TV’s platform provides for the ADB3800 set-top boxes. The platform enabled us to immediately migrate our O2 TV customers without them needing to exchange their set-top boxes, which is a huge advantage.”
Jakub Kabourek, nangu.TV’s CEO, added, “The nangu.TV mission is to provide our customers with a great tool for interactive TV distribution and we strongly believe IPTV is the best way to do this. Customers in today’s multiscreen, connected world expect to have content everywhere, on demand and we’re delighted to be able to deliver that.”
