NOS selects Metrological for OTT app store

NOS Sede 2Portuguese cable operator NOS has partnered with Metrological to launch a cloud-based TV app store for its subscribers.

NOS will use Metrological’s Application Platform, WPE (Web Platform for Embedded) browser and WPE cloud architecture to bolster its UMA personalised TV service.

With the deal, subscribers will be able to access the app store and view ‘the best of OTT programming’ along with live and on-demand TV from a single place, without leaving the main screen or EPG.

“Leveraging the Metrological platform, WPE browser and software plugins we are able to quickly launch OTT applications, other high value apps and new integrated services to market much faster with far less integration efforts,” said Pedro Bandeira, head of development, NOS.

Thijs Bijleveld, senior vice-president of sales and marketing at Metrological, said: “We are proud to partner with NOS to build this next generation video package bringing OTT experiences to ensure its customer’s television experience is always relevant and interactive.”

“Our goal is to make the onboarding and day-to-day content management seamless for NOS. Now NOS can add and change app and premium OTT service line ups quickly and easily, leaving the integration efforts to us.”
