ZAP partners with Arris for African nDVR and VoD

ZapSub-Sahara Lusophone African TV service provider ZAP has partnered with Arris to offer network DVR (nDVR) and video on demand (VOD) services.

Satellite TV provider ZAP is to use Arris’ APEX3000 chassis-based edge QAM platform to to merge network traffic and increase channel capacity, with system integrator Satcab deploying the solution.

“Providing value-added services to our subscribers will ensure we continue to be the provider of choice for our customers. The rising demand for catch-up TV meant we had to upgrade and improve our delivery network,” said ZAP engineering and IT director Luis Henriques.

ZAP is part owned by Portuguese pay TV provider Nos, launched in Angola in 2010 and offers TV services in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly Portuguese speaking countries.
