The service is also supported by Accedo AppGrid, a cloud-based solution which includes an intuitive management user interface to manage, configure and analyse the application.

"The Snap by Sky service further builds on Sky Deutschland's position as the leading OTT pay-TV provider in Germany and Austria, giving subscribers access to a wide range of high quality premium content," said Michael Lantz, CEO of Accedo. "We are delighted to be working with Sky Deutschland and enabling them to extend their reach further."
