Finnish telecoms operator Elisa has deployed the Netgem Diamond entertainment software suite to power the new Binge TV service in Estonia, allowing mobile operations to benefit from virtual STB features.

bingetv 6sepThe market leader in telecoms in Finland, Elisa provides services to 2.3 million consumers, corporate and public administration customers. The new connected entertainment solution will enable the Binge TV service to provision customers with a range of new TV services. These include an integrated user interface that aggregates content from across an optimal range of local and international linear channels into one place, as well as a 7-day catch-up and even the possibility to integrate services such as YouTube and Netflix.

Binge TV also incorporates a network PVR (nPVR) that offers access to on-demand programming across a multiscreen environment inside and outside the home, with a recommendation engine based on most popular programmes.

Building on an existing IPTV platform partnership, Elisa chose Netgem’s virtual STB cloud solution to support a deployment which also integrates a Binge TV mobile app designed to provide direct access to live and catch-up services.

“As we expand into new countries, we want to provide consumers with the best TV experience possible, and a flexible way to grow the service once launched,” said Einari Kanerva head of Binge business at Elisa, commenting on the move. “By deploying Binge TV, we can reach a growing population who want access to their TV content wherever they are, and Netgem’s platform gives us a unique flexibility to add more content and features over time.”

Added Netgem managing director Sylvain Thevenot: “Consumer behaviour is changing, and operators need rapidly deployable and dynamic solutions that will enable them to maintain a competitive edge."
