Finnish telco Elisa is using technology from OTT platform provider Tvinci to power its on-demand service EpicTV.
EpicTV will use Tvinci’s OTT 2.0 platform to enable its pan-European subscriber base to watch sports programming and movies in HD quality via iPads.
The free EpicTV iPad app gives consumers access to 600 movies based on adventure sports. Users can download content onto their devices to watch offline. “In an age where convenience is valued so highly and where consumers are averse to relying on traditional programming schedules, our latest deployment with Elisa has answered their immediate need not only for a new OTT video delivery method to iPad, but also a brand new TV experience,” said Ido Wiesenberg, Tvinci’s co-founder and vice-president business development.
