Media Broadcast Satellite (MBS) has launched zapily, a white-label IPTV platform for small and medium-sized fibre network operators who want to add their own TV product to their portfolio.
The aim is to make it easier for operators to enter the TV market by minimising complexity and costs, according to the technical service provider.
Zapily is a fully managed pay-as-you-grow IPTV platform developed in cooperation with local fibre network operators and consists of the technical IPTV platform and wide range of channels. The design can be adapted to the ideas and corporate design of the fibre network operator.
The solution runs as a virtual platform and can be used as a smart TV app independently of a set-top box on all newer Android TV, Samsung Tizen and LG WebOS devices. In addition, zapily offers the fibre network operator a self-management tool that can be connected to its own ERP system via an API interface.
MBS has chosen More Screens as its partner for the technical implementation of the platform.
“By integrating zapily into our existing media infrastructure and together with our experience in the broadcast sector, we can offer smaller and medium-sized fibre network operators a product that closes the market gap to already existing products and customer requirements. We are pleased to have found a technical partner in More Screens to support us on this path,” said MBS Managing Director Christian Fleischhauer.
Predrag Mandlbaum, co-founder and CEO of More Screens, added: “We are very excited to work with MBS to provide a best-in-class TV-as-a-service platform for small and medium-sized fibre network operators. The launch of zapily will enable these operators to quickly launch their own pay-TV or OTT service without having to invest in building their own infrastructure.”
MBS and More Screens will present zapily at German trade fair ANGA COM 2023 from May 23 to 25 May in hall 7 at stand C31.
