Built using InsysSport, PAOK TV is fully cloud-based, running on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Commenting on the development, Panagiotis Aroniadis, PAOK TV project manager and PAOK FC new media director, FC PAOK, said: “Last season PAOK TV disrupted football TV Rights in Greece, showing a new way to broadcast the matches and use new technologies, focusing on the future of television. Now with Insys Video Technologies and AWS on board, we decided to create a new OTT platform from the beginning so that we could become better, faster, and safer while offering a better user experience for our subscribers. #DareToDream is more than a motto for us”.
Jaroslaw Narojczyk, CBO, Insys Video Technologies, added: “Following the initial popularity of PAOK TV, the football club was keen to launch a new version of its platform. FC PAOK wanted to place a strong emphasis on improving the user experience for its fans, as well as delivering it to a wider range of platforms”.
The new PAOK TV service is available in three languages – Greek, Russian, and English – and can be viewed via web browsers, mobile devices, Android TV, LG webOS, and Samsung Smart TV Tizen. In the 2019-20 season, PAOK TV delivered 5,000 hours of content to more than 200,000 subscribers.
The all-new PAOK TV will premiere this Saturday, August 8.
