Set-top box (STB) and multiscreen digital entertainment software solutions and services provider 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) has unveiled a series of technical enhancements for Android TV deployments.
3READY Google Assistant 17Dec2018
The new 3READY Assistant is a product and service offering designed to deliver further choices and benefits to operators as well as their subscribers. It enables extra possibilities for custom device actions, deepening Google Assistant integration for superior Android TV services.

It enables operators to create their own value-adding set of commands to trigger a wide range of desired actions in the app which a viewer might like to do. These could range from customer support related actions including billing queries through to PVR instructions and management of advanced parental control features, among many other use cases.

A key part of the 3READY Assistant service model is continuous enhancement, with new commands and functions being regularly introduced into its vocabulary. Furthermore, operators can define and customise all these options in any Google Assistant compatible language. This says 3SS is a major benefit, promoting subscriber loyalty by enabling deeper engagement with the service using voice technology.

Android TV-based deployments are now widely acknowledged as capable of delivering game-changing entertainment experiences to viewers, alongside myriad operational advantages to service providers, as exemplified by Com Hem Tv Hub,” explained 3SS Managing Director. Kai-Christian Borchers. “With our new service 3READY Assistant, we are enabling service providers to even further differentiate their offerings from competitors, enhancing customer satisfaction by offering new capabilities, better discoverability, ultimately maximising business potential. 3READY is making the Google Assistant more useful for operators, helping them transform the way people think about and interact with their pay-TV service.”
