Leading Turkish telco Turkcell Superonline has commissioned IPTV technology provider Amino to provide fundamental technology for its new range of advanced video services.
The operator has recently begun rolling out its Turkcell TV+ service as part of an enhanced triple-play multiscreen offering, delivering a range of pay-TV and over-the-top (OTT) services to smartphones, tablets and the home TV alongside its broadband and mobile offering. Available nationally, Turkcell TV+ offers a range of popular TV channels, HD video-on-demand (VOD) and film channels that can be accessed across multiple devices at any time. These offer features including the ability to rewind the programme guide by up to 12 hours and simultaneous recording in the cloud allowing easy access to content on any device, anytime, anywhere.
Underpinning the service delivery will be Amino's Live Advanced Media Platform. The platform is Amino's latest generation home media hub for multiscreen and multistream delivery around the home. It supports catch-up TV services, VOD, social and user-generated content.
"We have created a service experience that demonstrates our commitment to simplify our customers' lives in the digital world by providing the best home-technology experience and solutions," said Turkcell Superonline CEO Murat Erkan. "Our customers are moving beyond connecting to the Internet, they want all the services and devices in their lives to seamlessly interact to help them achieve a truly smart, connected lifestyle. Our new platform Turkcell TV+ brings a brand new TV experience that makes TV watching experience independent from time, location, device, and fully demonstrates our commitment to bring innovative solutions to our customers' lives."
