Editor | 28-10-2013
Sun TV Networks Europe has embarked on a programme to migrate its satellite subscribers to the Cloudio TV multiplatform over-the-top (OTT) service.
Sun TV’s six TV channels are broadcast across Europe, the Middle East and Australia, while Cloudio TV has in place an OTT infrastructure offering subscriptions to premium content across multiple devices, including its own proprietary OTT streaming set-top box.
In addition to offering backend services such as subscriber and bouquet management, payment/billing, CDN delivery of all content, call centre and distribution of boxes across Europe, Cloudio TV will take control of the delivery of Sun TV’s current linear channels and develop Sun TV’s video on-demand (VOD) services.
“We are pleased to partner up with Cloudio TV to continue to bring our content outside of India in the form of this exclusive partnership,” explained Sun TV’s director, Yasothera Renganathan. “Cloudio TV has demonstrated that they are at the forefront of technology and offer us an end-to-end solution that meets all our requirements, most importantly, the security of our content. They will be providing the Sun TV channels and VOD content exclusively to our subscribers across Europe and Middle East.”
Added Cloudio TV CEO, David Vargas-Racero: “We are delighted and proud to be chosen as the exclusive supplier of all aspects of the service and are looking forward to seamlessly migrating the current satellite Sun TV customers to our service. We’ve already started after a successful test period and expect to finish by Q1 of next year. We felt that the key to winning this business was our ability to work within tight schedules and budgets across a variety of devices.”
