The move means that transactional and subscription services from Megogo will now be supported by the SmartTUBE 5 platform.
SmartLabs has designed SmartTUBE 5 as a platform for small and medium-sized service providers to deliver multiscdreen and multi-network TV offerings. The company launched it at the end of last year. More recently, SmarLabs has updated the platform to include support for Android-based set-tops, tablets, smartphones and TVs.
“The release of the service in various environments, cooperation with operators, telecom service providers, retailers and other vendors is part of our business strategy. Thus, we are developing a distribution network for content delivery. That is why we welcome partnerships of this kind in every possible way,” said Megogo.
SmartLabs supplies technology to a number of service providers in Russia and the CIS including MTS, MGTS, Rostelecom, Moyo, MTT and Georgia-based Caucusus Online.
Megogo recently marked its fifth anniversary. The company has a catalogue of about 80,000 on-demand titles and 300 channels, including 30 own-brand interactive services.
