Arris has announced two new customer deals in Asia Pacific, partnering with Australian pay TV operator Foxtel and South Korean internet service provider SK Broadband.
Foxtel’s new iQ4 set-top box is made by Arris. The device supports 4K and HDR video, combines broadcast satellite, terrestrial and IP capabilities, and features a 1,000GB hard-drive and Bluetooth remote control.
SK Broadband, meanwhile, has selected Arris to introduce a new line of Android 4K set-tops to its subscribers. These will combine linear, on-demand and over-the-top video, with the platform providing access to Android features and apps like YouTube, Chromecast and the Google Play Store.
“Our Asia-Pacific momentum is representative of Arris’ continued global growth,” said Steve McCaffery, president and managing director, international business operations group, Arris.
“Our work with Foxtel and SK Broadband is breaking new ground in bringing the benefits of the connected home to millions of consumers across Australia and Korea. Arris offers the right combination of technology, expertise, and global scale to help our customers continue to bring new innovations to market to address increasing consumer demand.”
