OTT TV specialist 3 Screen Solutions has joined Metrological’s preferred content partnership programme to develop new applications and services for pay TV operators.

The partnership will help content providers to design, develop and deliver new apps to enrich the pay TV viewing experience for consumers, according to 3 Screen Solutions.

3 Screen Solutions-developed apps will be published in the Metrological App Library, giving operators the ability to choose app line-ups that are best suited for their customer base. By using the Metrological Application Platform and open source SDK, apps only need to be developed once to run on all set-top boxes across more than 20 million homes, according to the company.

“We welcome 3 Screen Solutions as a preferred application development partner company that will have access to all our tools and solutions to create new personalized TV app experiences,” said Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological.

“We are excited to have 3SS develop new inventive applications for pay TV operators and look forward to helping more content providers benefit from our open SDK as well as the reach of our 20-plus million cross operator network.”

Kai-Christian Borchers, 3 Screen Solutions managing director, said: “With its powerful app store platform, Metrological has already played an important role in helping service providers build loyalty and improve the entertainment experience for consumers. Our view is that 3 Screen Solutions can use the Metrological Application Platform to deliver truly revolutionary innovations that will enhance the TV watching experience.”
