With the roll out of the new service, Turkish expats and locals are now able to watch 80 channels in addition to having access to 11 radio channels. Several channels are available in HD quality and all are available on TV screens, PCs, tablets and smartphones, according to the company.
The Digiturk service offers features including 12-hour time shift for live TV, catch up TV, YouTube, Internet radio, media playback over DLNA and USB connected devices. For local Turkish subscribers, Digiturk offers a traditional satellite bundle with an Octoshape OTT Web Player. For the international markets located beyond satellite reach, the AirTies Air set-top facilitates an OTT/IPTV service over the public Internet.
“With over five Million Turkish people living abroad, there is clear demand for high quality Turkish TV distribution across many markets. Delivering Digiturk’s content in a stable, high quality fashion is a core principle to our offerings,” said Hatice Memigüven, CTO and COO at Digiturk.
“We selected our strategic partners AirTies and Octoshape given their ability to expand our reach globally while providing the same quality of service our consumers have come to expect.”
