Technicolor Connected Home says it has deployed over 10 million Android TV set-top boxes since shipments began in 2016.
These include to European operators Canal Digital, Com Hem and Proximus, as well as Foxtel, Vodafone Australia, Echostar and Dish Mexico.
“As the number one provider of Android TV STBs in the world, Technicolor Connected Home has worked successfully to meet network service provider deployment requirements across the globe over the past year. We have met these demands despite the production and supply chain challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Mounir Toutah, Video Product Director, Technicolor Connected Home.
Technicolor says Android boxes are continuing to be deployed by cable, telco and other pay-TV operators around the world to support delivery of video and music streaming services or gaming applications.
“Subscribers appreciate the convenience of streamlining access to video services through NSP provided set-top boxes in the home as well as the added benefit of not incurring additional costs for retail equipment. Android TV has played an important role in improving the overall user experience and level of customer satisfaction, thus reducing churn, while elevating the reach of OTT content providers,” says Toutah.
