Nordic pay TV operator Allente has partnered with KAON and 3SS to launch its next-generation super-aggregated Android TV STB for Scandinavia.
The STBs, specifically the KAON BCM72180 PVR, will be available to over 1 million subscribers across the region. The tech is enabled by KAON middleware, NAGRA Media CAS, Broadcom 72180 SoC and based on 3SS UX technology.
Allente said that the service will have a phased rollout through the region in 2022, starting with Sweden. PVR functionality will be rolled out later this year.
The launch comes one year after Allente became one of the first operators to complete Google Common Broadcast Stack integration on an Android TV Operator Tier STB.
Jon Espen Nergård, Allente CTO, said, “We’re very excited to now offer our next-generation service to subscribers via satellite, IPTV and OTT streaming. We thank our amazing partners KAON and 3SS, and all our technology collaborators, in helping us provide our customers with a rich array of content, including their favourite apps, all wrapped in a world-class 3SS-enabled experience and delivered on KAON’s powerful STB.”
