Deutsche Telekom, Zenterio to Modernize Pay-TV in Germany
Deutsche Telekom is working with Zenterio, a TV technology and services provider, to modernize the TV subscriber experience in Germany with one of the market’s largest deployments of IPTV set top boxes. International rollouts are currently ongoing in Greece, Romania and Croatia.
Powered by Zenterio OS, this deployment is part of a new Deutsche Telekom offer for an entry-level IPTV subscription package, providing around 100 TV channels, including 22 in High Definition (HD) quality, from 2 euros ($2.27) per month.
Zenterio OS is a platform for set top boxes from entry level to high end, returning control to the operator with software independence on client devices, the company said. According to Zenterio, the OS helps deliver advanced data collection and intelligent backend integration with any set top box model across different countries, vendors and ecosystems.
More launches are planned in the near future to enable Ultra-HD and satellite-based broadcasts.
