Telenet has provided a preview of its new connected TV app, Yelo TV, which is based on Liberty Global’s Horizon user interface.
The Belgian cable operator’s multiscreen service Yelo launched in 2010 and is available on smartphones, tablets and PCs. It will launch on connected TVs early next year, Telenet said.
The TV app will let Yelo TV users view photos and videos that are stored on PCs, smartphones and tablets via the TV. TV recordings will be viewable on any Yelo-registered device.
“Telenet focuses on three elements when it comes to watching television: watch what you want, when you want and where you want, and be always assured of the best quality and the greatest user-friendliness,” said Inge Smidts, senior vice-president residential marketing, Telenet. “The Yelo application that we launched in 2010 was already a first step. With Yelo TV, Telenet is taking the next step, and we are creating an entirely new user experience. This is a new way of watching TV that responds to the customer’s need to watch his favourite content on any screen he wants. Watching television no longer stops at the TV set. Thanks to the latest technology, it is possible to connect different devices with each other and have the viewing experience flow seamlessly from one to the other, when and where the customer wants. Yelo TV ensures the same look and feel on all screens that the customer has, and creates an optimum television experience, with more interactivity and freedom.”
