MX1, the technical services subsidiary of Astra satellite operator SES, is providing content aggregation for a number of channels from the new digital TV platform offered by German ISP 1&1.
As Germany’s first fully cloud-based TV service, 1&1 offers its DSL customers a multiscreen TV platform with free-to-air and pay-TV channels.
Currently, MX1 supports nine channels with signal feeds and processing, including A&E HD, TNT Film HD, Universal Channel SD and HD, TNT Comedy SD, Cartoon Network SD and HD, Boomerang HD and kabel eins Classics SD.
“As content offerings increase, the demand for content management solutions and distribution services is growing, making partnerships like this even more important,” said Christoph Mühleib, Managing Director of Astra Deutschland, responsible for the marketing of Astra and MX1 services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “We work in a highly dynamic market and with MX1 we can address challenging and complex requirements in a flexible way.”
