Nordic Pay-tv operator Allente has launched a new 4K dongle that will stream its Google TV OTT service.
The plug-and-play device from SEI Robotics Inc. features a wired Ethernet connection as an alternative to Wi-Fi.
The UX mirrors that on smart TVs, hybrid STBs, tablets and smart phones, and is again powered by 3SS’ 3Ready product framework.
This is the first customized operator streaming dongle in EMEA using Google TV. Time to market for this project was exceptionally fast, taking less than four months to complete.
“The Google TV interface gives operators the benefit of Google’s best in class capabilities while reducing operator investments and time to market. We congratulate Allente on launching their new Google TV device as one of our first operator partners globally,” says Amanda Short, Director, Global TV Platform Partnerships, Google.
The Allente app for the dongle is installed from Google Play during first time installation. The remote control features an Allente button to launch the experience as well as a TV button that leads the viewer directly to Live TV inside the Allente experience.
3SS has been working with Allente, which serves Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, since 2018.
