3 Screen Solutions (3SS) has joined the preferred content partnership programme of Dutch TV app provider Metrological to develop new applications and services for pay-TV operators.

The partnership will help content providers to design, develop and deliver apps enriching the pay-TV viewing experience for consumers, according to 3SS.

Apps developed by 3SS, a German provider of customised software solutions and services to the multiscreen digital entertainment industry, will be published in the Metrological app library, giving operators the ability to pick and choose app line-ups that are best suited for their customer base. By using the Metrological application platform and open source SDK, apps only need to be developed once to run on all set-top boxes across more than 20 million homes.

The Metrological application platform also includes business intelligence solutions and monetisation tools that help content owners to further leverage their brand and increase revenue.
