Spanish cable TV provider Euskaltel has tapped NAGRA to secure its Android TV-based 4K set-top boxes (STBs) by Technicolor.

The launch marks the first Android TV operator-tier deployment for NAGRA.

The seamless integration of the NAGRA-secured STB with the operator’s existing OpenTV Platform backend gives Euskaltel the ability to bring a range of new content packages to its subscribers. They include premium 4K content with video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up and start-over TV, cloud DVR and multiscreen TV secured by NAGRA CONNECT, the converged CAS/DRM solution for connected STBs and televisions.

"Consumer demand for high quality content on multiple screens keeps growing and we’ re delighted to respond with this new offer for our subscribers,” said Leticia Sánchez Berian, director of television operations at Euskaltel. “By working with NAGRA and Technicolor, we were able to introduce a new 4K set-top box that allow s us to take advantage of our existing OpenTV backend platform to deliver linear and on-demand premium content while also tapping into a rich Android TV video app ecosystem to deliver even more value to our customers.”
