Israeli-based satellite provider yes is using the Viaccess-Orca COMPASS content discovery platform to support its new yes Go TV everywhere service.

yes Go, Israel's first multiscreen TV service, will deliver more than 50 live TV channels and thousands of hours of video-on-demand (VOD) content to subscribers, offering personalised content and recommendations anytime, anywhere, on any screen. Video streams will thus be provided to TVs, PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

yes Go subscribers will receive real-time recommendations and updates of popular and interesting content being aired live, both from the electronic programme guide (EPG) and on-demand.

During the launch period, the yes Go service will be provided free to all customers of yes VOD and at NIS19.90 per month for customers without VOD.

Already partnering with yes, Viaccess-Orca previously powered recommendations for the operator's My TV service.

"By enabling us to learn and understand viewer tastes and demands for content, and recommend personalised content that keeps subscribers loyal to our service, Viaccess-Orca's COMPASS will increase subscriber satisfaction and revenue streams," explained Dovev Goldstein, head of business development and products department, at yes.

Viaccess-Orca has announced that COMPASS will now power more than six million video subscribers around the world.
