The hybrid TV everywhere service will be gradually extended across other Latin American countries in which Millicom Tigo operates a pay-TV operation. The announcement follows the development partnership signed with TiVo two years ago.
“According to the latest figures, 53% of Colombian homes are connected to the Internet and nine in ten TV sets sold last year were smart. With Tigo ONE TV we aim precisely to address both markets, building a bridge between traditional TV and video streaming,” said Marcelo Cataldo, president, TigoUne.
In addition to integrate content from all the different services into a single platform, Tigo ONE TV has added a big data, content recommendation feature and a cloud-based, catch-up and DVR service. In addition, it delivers seamless content access across different screens and simultaneous streams.
The service has been launched as an add-on to TigoUne’s convergent packages and includes one-month free trial of FOX and HBO streaming services and a three-month free subscription to Sony’s Crackle.
