Deutsche Telekom taps Accedo for Amazon Fire TV

Deutsche Telekom has tapped video technology outfit Accedo to deliver its Magenta TV service on Amazon Fire TV.

Magenta TV offers live and VOD video, giving subscribers access to up to 75 channels, 45 of which are in High Definition. Users can also fine tune their preferences and settings in-app to get a personalized experience.

The app has been developed using Accedo One, the application platform from Accedo, designed to support the development of video applications across multiple devices.

Magenta TV also uses Accedo One for real-time app configuration and content management, enabling Deutsche Telekom to make real-time changes on the fly, according to Accedo.

The technology company said that as more platforms are added over the coming months, these can be added to the Accedo One  platform so that all versions can be managed from one central hub.

Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo, said: “Magenta TV is a great example of an innovative move by a pay TV operator to deliver a pure over-the-top (OTT) experience for its subscribers. We think that Deutsche Telekom continues to be at the forefront of video innovation and we’re thrilled to be working with them to deliver true value to German video consumers.”
