CommScope is to deploy its Hybrid DVB-C and IP connected 4K UHD digital video decoder for Orange Moldova. The operator plans to blend DVB-C TV services with OTT streaming.
It’s a version of the set-top that has recently entered service with Orange Belgium.
The Orange TV Box 4K provides access to the full Orange Moldova TV Grid, with more than 180 live TV channels and the device also allows for one hour of recording for Play / Pause functionality.
“Orange Moldova is providing their subscribers with innovative set tops that will enhance their viewing experience and deliver aggregated streaming content,” said Anthony Zuyderhoff, Senior Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Home Networks, CommScope. “We are enthusiastic to continue our partnership with Orange and to supply state-of-the-art devices that provides their subscribers with the services and entertainment they have come to expect.”
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).
Other features include new multiscreen cloud recording service, and the ability to cast movies, music and more to the TV with Chromecast built-in. There is a voice-activated remote control to search for content within Google.
“We understand that our subscribers’ television viewing habits have evolved. That means our services and devices had to evolve as well,” said Olga Surugiu, CEO, Orange Moldova. “Through our continued partnership with CommScope, we are excited to provide our subscribers with the Orange TV Box 4K that enhances their live and streaming entertainment viewing. With the new TV Box, we will bring innovation to our customers’ homes, while Android TV brings users endless entertainment in one place.”
In addition to Belgium, the device has also been deployed by Orange Slovensko in 2021. Further deployments are expected later this year.
