Proximus signs up 3SS for IPTV service

Set-top box software provider 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) has been selected by Belgian telco Proximus to provide the tech behind the Proximus Pickx next generation IPTV service based on Android TV Operator Tier.

Proximus Pickx is Europe’s first Android P based TV project and had its pilot launch in October. The platform offers subscribers a wide array of state-of-the-art user features, tied together in a customisable user experience. It offers access to live TV, catchup and VOD apps such as Netflix. It also utilises the ThinkAnalytics recommendation engine and Google Assistant for enhanced content discovery. 

Thierry Demoor, head of applications and service platforms at Proximus said: “We knew that if we really wanted to give our subscribers a truly great TV experience, with all the Android apps they love, plus Google TV Services including Chromecast and Google Assistant, while also being able to launch our own features, we needed to choose Android TV Operator Tier.

“This has been a game-changer and with the help of 3SS, we are delivering a highly engaging, world-class personal TV service to our viewers.”

Kai-Christian Borchers, managing director of 3SS, said: “We are so proud to have been entrusted by such a world-class leader as Proximus,” said “We are excited to be helping to bring next-generation TV experiences to consumers in Belgium.”
