NOS launches Iris tablet app and revamps UI

NOS Iris newPortuguese cable and pay TV operator NOS has revamped its Iris advanced TV user interface and launched an application allowing users to take control of their TV service via tablets, currently available on Android and iOS devices. 

The new Iris interface includes a recommendation engine that presents content to users based on previous consumption, while the tablet application enables them to browse the TV schedule and control the TV and access additional content.

The app is only available via Android and iOS tablets and NOS reportedly does not intend to make the service available via smartphones, although a version for Windows-based tablets is reportedly planned.
