The Latvian cable operator Baltcom has launched a new OTT service named Open TV.
Available throughout the country for €3.50 a month, it can be viewed through the internet connection of any service provider, including 4G internet offered by mobile operators.
Commenting on the development, Nicolas Boissin, chairman of the board at Baltcom, said: “last year Baltcom launched Interactive TV 3.0, the most advanced interactive television platform in the Baltics, in which customers’ interest has been high. However, we often encountered a situation where, for technological reasons, we could not provide the innovative service in a number of regions in Latvia. Accordingly, on the basis of requests for the service, we have also developed the new OTT product Open TV, which will be available to every user throughout Latvia in the future”.
Open TV users have access to 38 specially selected TV channels, both live and on demand, including the All Media Baltic services TV3, LNT, TV6, Kanal 2 and Kanal 3+, as well as films and series from its library. In addition, Open TV has all the feature of Baltcom’s Interactive TV 3.0 service.
Boissin also said that Open TV can be received by Baltcom customers while making short trips to other EU countries.
