Taiwan Broadband Communications (TBS) has tapped TV technology outfit Nagra to provide its OpenTV Suite to power its new OTT TV service, TBC Go.

Both cable and broadband TBC customers will have on-the-go access to live TV and to more advanced features later this year.

TBC Go will deliver live TV and video-on-demand on open devices. The service is expected to be commercially available to TBC subscribers in June.

The OpenTV Suite is a set of tightly integrated and optimised TV components comprising OpenTV Experience, OpenTV Platform, OpenTV OS and OpenTV Player that is designed to facilitate and simplify access to digital media content on multiple viewing devices and deliver advantages of deployment speed, performance, service innovation, scalability and monetization, according to Nagra.

“Nagra has been a key partner since 2015 in helping us roll out our newly digitized platform and enable new services like our OTT platform,” said Jimmy Chen, CEO, TBC.

“Their tightly integrated solutions provide fast time-to-market and their team is committed to our success. We look forward to introducing it to all of our subscribers in the next few months.”

Stéphane Le Dréau, SVP, sales and services APAC at Nagra, said: “We are excited to support TBC as they leverage their digital platform to enjoy all the benefits that OTT has to offer and deliver more compelling services to their customers. This latest service launch highlights TBC’s commitment to their customers by extending their access both inside and outside the home. With the OpenTV Suite, TBC has an OTT solution that is widely used by operators around the world and gives them a launchpad for new services and extended monetization opportunities.”
