Orange Belgium has launched its next-generation TV decoders with a ‘reinvented’ TV experience that includes new integrated apps for local broadcasters VRT NU, RTBF Auvio, VTM GO and RTL Play.
The Android decoders also feature Chromecast capabilities and a new cloud-based multi-screen TV recording service. Customers from the same household will be able to access their recordings from any device, whether on TV or via the Orange TV Plus app (smartphones, tablet, app)
Available to the telco’s 400,000 customers, the box integrates a new, high-performance chipset capable of rendering in 4K.
Christophe Dujardin, Chief Consumer Officer of Orange Belgium said: “This new-generation TV decoder is not only the launch of a new device, but it is also a major revamp of the way we provide content to our customers. Thanks to the integration of native applications and other features, we are really giving them control over their consumption and making new, innovative experiences possible. By offering a platform to several (and even local) content providers, we also support diversity of production and expand the variety of experiences available to our customers.”
A free subscription to streaming service Starz is available for the next three months.
