Canal Digital taps 3SS for new Android TV functionality

Telenor-owned pay TV platform Canal Digital has tapped technology outfit 3 Screen Solutions to provide additional features and functionality for its Android TV-based OnePlace service.

Launched in February last year, OnePlace, which uses 3SS’s custom launcher for Android TV, is available via satellite and OTT TV to viewers in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

The service now includes integrated access to Netflix with recent enhancements including startover TV, ‘coming soon’ teaser promotions and a display of already-subscribed services.

Canal Digital has tapped 3SS to provide MixPanel, an analytics tool that enable it to capture and analyse user behaviour across devices, including new cross-platform promotional offers aligned with individual viewing patterns and preferences.

3SS has also deployed its Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), a software development framework designed to accelerate and optimise system deployments, according to the company.

Henke Erichsen, Canal Digital CTO and CIO, said: “The scaled agile development methodology (SAFe) has been a revelation, and it has ignited a revolution in the way we approach product- and technology development at company level. With SAFe, we now have a much more transparent, predictable and efficient development process, and our subscribers are reaping the benefits.”

Kai-Christian Borchers, Managing Director at 3SS, said: “OnePlace continues to go from strength to strength. Canal Digital has delivered even more innovation, and we are proud that 3SS contributions, from introducing SAFe to further unlocking the potential of Android TV, are enhancing the experiences of subscribers.”
