The move follows the recent acquisition of Sun Communications, Moldova’s leading cable operator, by Orange.
Commenting on the new TV service, Ludmila Nistorica, CMO at Orange Moldova, said: “Our goal with acquiring Sun Communications was to offer our customers more than just mobile services. Since launching our new converged TV service, our mobile customers have access to our offering of 171 channels, 26 of which are in HD.
“Working with Viaccess-Orca and our CPE partners greatly expedited this process, helping us to quickly enter the pay-TV market and launch innovative new services, including convergent offerings, for an unmatched user experience. Ultimately, this partnership strengthens our leadership in the market.”
Chem Assayag, EVP marketing & sales at Viaccess-Orca, added: “As the only seamless end-to-end card and cardless CAS solution on the market, Adaptive Sentinel is the best choice for Orange Moldova, in terms of guaranteeing high flexibility, short time-to-market, and ROI.
“Our CAS solution, combined with Hi-Global Technology’s STB and Neotion CI+ module, puts Orange Moldova in a great position to increase their subscriber base and profitability, while meeting the strict security requirements for premium content.”
