December 9, 2013 11.41 Europe/London By Robert Briel

Comigo and KartinaTV have expanded their partnership which began in January 2013 when Comigo began to provide KartinaTV with its TV platform.

Under the expanded collaboration, Comigo will provide its new generation set-top-box, Comigo Plus, to Kartina TV, an OTT service provider that delivers Russian-language television to Russian speakers outside of the Russian Federation. The new features include a fast set up process, a new channel display and catch up features which enable viewers to watch content from the last two weeks and to watch the show from the exact point they stopped watching it using Comigo’s bookmark.

The product will also include a new remote control. It is the fastest second purchase order by KartinaTV and further strengthens its partnership with Comigo.

“We are delighted to continue working with Comigo. Its unique TV solution ensures our customers get the personalized viewer experience they’ve always wanted, and we are excited to improve the customer experience even further with an abundance of new capabilities this new product will bring,” explained Alexander Cofman, head of client products and R&D, KartinaTV.

“Our strategic partnership will help us to retain our Russian language audience in Germany, expand to the US market and win even more customers across the world.”

“Our solution has a very intuitive and simple user interface delivering television, access to Internet and is a fully functioning social platform,” commented Joseph Deutsch, VP Sales, Comigo.

“We are pleased that KartinaTV has chosen Comigo’s solution to provide their viewers a superb TV experience. Together we will launch new services and deliver additional new features and capabilities enabled by our platform.”
