Telecable chooses Accedo for cloud DVR

telecableSpanish regional cable operator Telecable has chosen Accedo to deliver the technology platform for its cloud DVR service, Tedi, the latest version of which launched earlier this month.

Subscribers across Telecable’s Asturias footprint are now able to access Tedi via a dedicated set-top-box, or via iOS or Android apps, which extend DVR capabilities to mobile phones.

The Tedi service is free to customers and includes a catalogue of programmes and complete series, including a range of high definition content. An extended EPG gives users an overview of all available channels.

Customers are also able to make multiple simultaneous recordings, as well as scheduling programmes to be recorded ahead of time.

“It was important for us to not only give our customers a wide selection of content on a range of devices, but also to make discovering our linear content easy and intuitive through cloud DVR capabilities. Having worked with Accedo on previous versions, we were confident it could help us to achieve that,” said Jesús Pérez, chief technology officer, Telecable. “

“The Tedi service has already proved to be one of the most innovative OTT service across Spain,” said Jerónimo Macanás, Vice President Latin America and Southern Europe, Accedo. “Extending it with these cloud DVR capabilities is giving customers even more control over their viewing experience, all presented in an easy-to-use User Interface, whichever device they are using.”
