Germany has become the latest market in which Vodafone TV is employing the Kaltura TV platform.
Vodafone TV was launched in Germany in February 2021 and the service is available in both Vodafone and Unitymedia network footprint. It follows earlier Vodafone TV launches in Hungary and Czech Republic in 2020.
The service is also live in Romania, Portugal, Greece, New Zealand, Spain and Italy, bringing the total to nine active Vodafone TV markets today, all powered by Kaltura technology.
Commenting on the development, Wolfgang Zeller, Vodafone Group head of video, said: “Seven years ago, we selected Kaltura as our Cloud TV partner because its vision of innovation fits perfectly with ours; together we’ve built a Cloud TV platform that combines the best of OTT and pay-TV into a single service.
“The flexibility, agility and scalability of Kaltura’s future-ready TV Platform is enabling Vodafone TV to reap all the advantages of being a single, cloud-based service available in many markets around the world via a range of network architectures and across devices”.
Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura co-founder, chairman and CEO, added: “We are honoured to support Vodafone TV’s expansion into new territories and congratulate Vodafone for most recently going live in Germany, a key Vodafone TV market.
“With such a large global footprint, Vodafone continues to lead the market in creating a multi-country, full-featured Cloud TV solution that we are proud to power with our technology. We continue to thank Vodafone for our ever-deepening partnership”.
