Deutsche Telekom is launching a new multiscreen TV service, powered by Cisco’s Videoscape Distribution Suite.
Priced at €4.95 per month the service gives access to the Entertain content on devices that are connected to the users’ home Wi-Fi network, as well as allowing them to view on demand content from the Entertain video library.
Holger Diekmann, Technical Project Lead Entertain to go and Senior Expert Service Management, Telekom Deutschland said: “Working with Cisco to bring the ‘Entertain to go’ service to market has been a very positive experience characterized by flexibility and speed of reacting to our specific requirements. The Cisco team was strongly committed to developing and deploying new features within the desired time frame, which enabled us to bring this new service to our customers in a very short time.”
VDS, part of Cisco’s Videoscape Unity TV services delivery platform, enables the distribution of video content across multiple screens, protocols, applications and networks.
