P&TLuxembourg updates IPTV platform with Netgem

Luxembourg IPTV operator P&TLuxembourg will roll out an enhanced IPTV service this month using Netgem set-top boxes and associated software.

Subscribers to P&T’s premium package will receive a Netbox N8000 MediaCentre DVR, giving them access to over 200 IPTV channels, over-the-top VOD, catch-up TV and social media content from web applications. Customers will be able to pause and record live-TV, access their own media content via the Mediacentre and use their smartphones as a remote control.

Marc Rosenfeld, member of the board of directors of P&T Luxembourg, said: “We decided to work with Netgem because its software allowed us to make a smooth upgrade to IPTV 2.0 to offer our subscribers a raft of new services. Our customers will now benefit from a new and exciting TV experience with highly intuitive and fast navigation. The upgrade allows the seamless blending of IPTV channels with rich internet content and must-have apps like Facebook and the web radio service TuneIn, developed for the STB by Netgem’s SDK partner MultimediaVision. The openness of Netgem’s Middleware and SDK was definitely a key criterion in our choice to work with them.”
