Kyivstar tapping Vidmind for OTT platform

Ukrainian mobile and fixed-line service provider Kyivstar is using Vidmind to supply the platform for its recently-launched OTT TV service.

Vidmind will highlight the platform at next week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Vidmind and Modern Times Group-owned Viasat Ukraine together won the tender to supply the service, which went live in November, to Kyivstar.

The Ukrainian operator has now rolled out its OTT offering across Ukraine, following initial availability in Krivoy Rog and Zhytomyr

Vidmind was chosen because of its advanced and robust technology,” said Hagai Azor, VP Operations at Vidmind. “Together with ViaSat we were able to offer a risk-free model and fast deployment capability combined with premium content.”
