Vewd Go allows operators to be the native experience that connects and grows their subscriber base while providing third-party content. Constructed in in partnership with semiconductor firm HiSilicon Technologies, the solution has been built for operators to boost subscribers by directly addressing the fast-evolving demands of the OTT generation.

Vewd Go is also said to give operators new ways to reach cord-nevers, cord-cutters, multi-room subscribers, and subscribers-on-the-go. It gives operators flexibility on how they programme their offering — from a first app position to a fully customisable home screen — and comes with a modern user experience, a robust app catalogue, cloud-based management tools, and monetisation opportunities.

“Pay-TV economics are changing rapidly,” explained Aneesh Rajaram, CEO, Vewd. “Increasing subscription revenue today means finding a way to transition business models with new product propositions that target cord-cutters and cord-nevers. Given the fierce competitive landscape, operators will have difficulty achieving this in a short time frame while maintaining complete control. Vewd Go solves this by giving operators everything they need to manage and grow their subscriber base, allowing them to stay focused on their real challenges.”

“Operators demand a low-cost streaming device that they can fully control,” added John Liu, GM of STB product line, HiSilicon Technologies. “With Vewd Go, we sought to bring the operator the flexibility they would normally enjoy from a hybrid set-top box, but in a turnkey customisable platform. Vewd Go is adaptable to any portable form factor to suit the modern consumers’ needs.”
