Telekom Slovenia considering standalone OTT offering

Telekom Slovenia is considering offering its OTT platform SiOL TViN as a standalone service.  

The service is currently available only as part of the Slovenian telco’s triple-play offering. “In the future, if devices are ready, it could work standalone,” said Tomaz Pernovsek, deputy CEO of Telekom Slovenia-owned TSMedia, speaking on a panel session at Informa’s Digital TV CEE conference in Prague yesterday.

Pernovsek said that Telekom Slovenia was developing applications for iOS and Android devices based on adaptive streaming technology.

Telekom Slovenia currently offers two variants of its OTT service: SiOL Tvin multiscreen TV service and Dkino, a VOD library also available on multiple devices. Telekom Slovenia is developing a home cloud service to deliver content to multiple devices via DLNA.

Pernovsek said the TViN application had been downloaded about 50,000 times already, with about half of those customers using it regularly.
