“We are now working on internal testing for both Apple TV and Android TV at Liberty Global. This is followed by customer testing. We can’t yet give a concrete date for going live,” Erik Van Doeselaar told local news site TV Totaal.
Liberty Global is part owner of VodafoneZiggo and, as a former owner of Ziggo, takes care of the technical aspects of the cable company’s network.
The demand for apps for Apple TV and Android TV among cable company customers is growing. The apps make it easier to use TV Everywhere service such as Ziggo Go to watch TV channels wirelessly and to use interactive services such as Replay TV.
With the phasing out of analogue TV, Ziggo Go is a good alternative for many if the coaxial cabling in the home environment leaves a lot to be desired from a technical point of view. With Ziggo Go it is possible to watch more than 100 channels live in all countries of the European Union (EU), depending on the tier of TV subscription. Ziggo Go is currently available on desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone.
