Platform operator M7 and fibre-optic network provider Deutsche Glasfaser offer German network operators a new turnkey solution for the provision of their customers with TV packages.
The white label product combines the TV rights portfolio of M7 with Deutsche Glasfaser’s IPTV technology. The first customer already using the service is German network operator Inexio. The company supplies internet, telephony and TV services to more than 90,000 customers.
“Our multicarrier agreement is groundbreaking for the German IPTV market. Through the partnership between two leading industry players, network operators now have the unique opportunity to enter the attractive IPTV market with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art product featuring multi-device compatibility under their own brand name without having to invest in proprietary solutions,” said Christian Heinkele, Managing Director of Eviso Germany, business partner of M7 Group.
Uwe Nickl, Managing Director of Deutsche Glasfaser, added: “Through our partnership, network partners of all sizes will receive an ultra-modern, turnkey white label product with an integrated range of services that sets new standards in the broadband market. In addition to the technical IPTV wholesale product, this includes a very broad portfolio of content licenses for commercial HD, pay-TV and international channels as well as comprehensive marketing support for marketing campaigns targeting their own customers.”
The technical multi-device solution which extends from TV sets to mobile devices was developed by Deutsche Glasfaser and initially offered to its own customers. In addition to a broad portfolio of TV channels, the offer includes interactive functions such as recording and replay TV. The TV carriage rights supplied by M7 comprise more than 140 channels including commercial HD channels, pay-TV and foreign language channels.
