Delta taps Amino for Move TV

Dutch cable operator Delta has tapped Amino to provide its Move TV delivery platform for the operator’s recently-launched TV service.

delta interactieve-ontvanger-2Amino worked with Delta to help it migrate its existing cable TV subscriber base to an all IP-based service model – and enable a range of advanced service features and user experience improvements alongside an extended range of live, on-demand and OTT content.

Delta previously used Amino Move to provide a TV everywhere service for mobile and tablet viewing. The operator is now using the technology platform to manage its overall TV service using Amino’s 6 series 4K/UHD compatible IPTV set-top.

Amino said that it would implement new developments to enable Delat to offer a wider range of services in the near future.

Delta CTO Karl Heinz van der Made said: “Delta is pleased with the knowledge and expertise of Amino and the way they have developed our new interactive TV platform. With this offer, our customers have all the freedom and endless possibilities to watch TV wherever and whenever they want. With the latest on-demand capabilities, our customers get a TV platform that excels in user-friendliness and delivers a highly personalized experience.”

Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “We have worked very closely with Delta on this major transformation project. This is a clear demonstration of our enhanced capabilities as a business and our ability to deliver complex cable-IP transformation solutions to forward thinking operators seeking to transition from cable to an all IP future. We look forward to working closely with Delta as they roll out their service.”

The new Delta TV service offers advanced features such as pause live TV, multiscreen viewing, startover and cloud DVR.

The launch means that Delta is now able to offer interactive TV via the main screen for the first time, having previously launched an internet TV app. The new service offers subscribers the ability to record up to 250 hours of content via cloud-based DVR.

Delta is making the service free for the first six months, with a monthly subscription of €3.50 a month thereafter.

Delta has said it plans to launch a new version of its TV app in the spring.
