In a statement, it says that back in December 2016 it was the first in Lithuania, and one of the first in the world, to start broadcasting Mezon TV (IPTV) programmes to homes over the 4G LTE network. Now, some are being offered in HD.
Commenting on the latest development, Egidius Rope, the company’s CTO, said: “Almost all mobile operators in the country announce TV and video content streaming on 4G networks, but it must be understood that this streaming video is mostly sent to small screens on smartphones and tablets. A rare operator is committed to delivering TV programmes to the big-screen TVs at home, as this is a technological challenge that requires significant network resources.
“We are better prepared in this regard: the high-bandwidth Telecentras network and the application of state-of-the-art data processing technology enable us to bring smart TV services to homes that have so far been” bitten ” by landline-only technology.”
Almost all of the most watched channels in Lithuania are re-broadcast in HD via Mezon IPTV. Of the 12 bundles of 12 TV channels, 11 are retransmitted in HD, while the Optimum HD bundle contains more than a third of channels of retransmitted HD.
IPTV services are currently used by over 270,000 people in Lithuania.
