MegaM, Philips TV and UniqCast join forces to deliver premium TV Service for cable operators
MegaM TV Service, powered by UniqCast, Awarded as the Best User Experience App on Philips Android TV in Adriatic Region for 2018.
MegaM is offering telephony services to many cable operators in Slovenia and they wanted to extend it with the OTT TV service. Goal was to launch TV service with premium user experience, providing Live TV and Catch Up TV services on STB, PC and mobile devices, in order to sell the service to existing cable operators as well as to attract new ones.
Most important decision criteria during the selection process were user experience of the client applications, platform with middleware and streaming from single vendor and a vendor that was willing to listen and adapt to MegaM technical and business requirements. Final solution was based on UniqCast TV platform, that provides content and subscriber management, streaming and client applications for Android STB, Android based TV, PC and mobile devices with multi operator support and all expected features.
“UniqCast provided the best user experience comparing to all other vendors that we were evaluating”, said Mr. Matej Meza, CEO at MegaM, “beside technical flexibility, UniqCast really understood our position on the market and was willing to adapt to our business requirements, providing competitive and cost effective solution.”
In order to reduce number of devices in the living room, further improve user experience and optimize investment per each subscriber, MegaM offered service with UniqCast client app on the Philips Android TV models.
“At TP Vision, we put a lot of effort in quality and user experience of our TV models. Every year we are also evaluating TV apps available on our Philips Android TV platforms. MegaM service with UniqCast client app was announced as the best user experience video streaming app in Adriatic region for 2018.” said Mr. Jernej Lipus, Technical Service Manager CEE at TP Vision/Philips TV. “UniqCast app comes with fast channel zapping, easy to use UI, excellent content discovery and it works perfectly with Philips Android TV models. Quality of Philips TV in combination with MegaM service, should satisfy even the most demanding viewers.”
“We are proud to be part of the partnership between MegaM, Philips TV and UniqCast, that resulted in a successful TV service,” said Mr. Darko Robič, CEO at UniqCast. “I look forward to future extensions of the service at MegaM, as well as to extend the partnership with Philips TV to other UniqCast customers in the region.”
