IPVconnect taps Nagra for move from satellite to streaming

US TV, internet and IP voice provider IPVconnect has tapped TV technology outfit Nagra to help it move from its current satellite TV broadcast offering to a video streaming service.

IPVconnect now currently sells broadband and voice services to subscribers within Homeowner Association (HOA) communities, apartment communities, condo communities, manufactured housing communities, hotels, hospital facilities, assisted living developments, and more across Florida and other US states.

However, faced with competition from multiple OTT applications compete to capture consumer market share, the company decided to move its TV offering to an internet-based service, providing subscribers with a range of content and streaming offerings delivered through an app available on any device.

The new service offers consumers access to a range of streaming apps, sports, premium movies, and local channels.

Powered by Nagra’s OpenTV video platform, in conjunction with partners such as Broadpeak, Nagra’s US Streaming Solution enables IPVconnect to deliver audio and video services via the internet, using its own headend equipment, to its subscribers.

At initial launch, consumers can access the service through a FireTV device via Android TV. In subsequent launch waves, Android set-top-box units will be deployed with the Nagra UX framework and the IPVconnect app pre-installed.

“As an innovative and trusted partner, Nagra is providing IPVconnect with all the tools needed to ensure our subscribers can easily find and enjoy the content they crave. From the first meeting through implementation, we’ve been impressed with the agility and quick time-to-market provided by the Nagra approach. We’re excited to launch our fully featured streaming solution to serve our current subscribers better and will use this as fuel to grow our broadband revenue,” said Tyler Bell, IPVconnect CEO.
“Nagra continues to enhance the capabilities of its US Streaming Solution to further deliver upon the needs of service providers like IPVconnect. The flexibility of either an on-premise or all cloud hosted turn-key solution provides operators of all sizes the opportunity to better address consumer needs to help drive engagement, retention, and revenue. We are pleased to help IPVconnect provide the localized and customized content their subscribers demand,” said Xavier Fustagueras, SVP Americas for Nagra.
