November 1, 2019 10.36 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul
The Uruguayan cable and OTT service provider TCC has chosen 3 Screens Solutions (3SS) to help develop its next generation TV service to launch in 2020.
TCC’s new service will employ the 3Ready Android TV + Multiscreen front end and UI framework solution featuring an Android TV Custom Launcher STB. TCC has decided to build its upcoming service based on increasingly popular Android TV™ Operator Tier, Google’s proposition for service providers who wish to deliver advanced TV products featuring the vast array of attractive apps in the Google Play Store and Google Chromecast pre-integrated, alongside Google Assistant. A key benefit is that TCC will engage with subscribers via a branded, customisable launcher and UI.
Moreover, TCC will incorporate 3SS´s front-end solution into its SaaS platform for the pay-TV industry in the region. By these means, TCC will extend its technology, user experience and quality standards to other network operators in the region in order to increase its current offer, now with more than 200,000 subscribers.
Furthermore, 3SS will carry out Google Assistant Android TV integration, along with enabling 3Ready Assistant, 3Ready’s innovation which further enriches voice search.
According to Kai-Christian Borchers, MD at 3SS, TCC has joined the growing population of service providers around the world who recognize that Android TV enables them to seamlessly deliver a next-generation service with all the most desirable apps and services in an open source environment.
“By additionally choosing to deploy 3Ready Multiscreen alongside Android TV, TCC will be able to reap maximum commercial benefit from its soon-to-launch service, while providing its subscribers a world class entertainment experience”.
