Telenor Sverige launches new Android TV STB with CommScope and 24i

Norwegian telco Telenor Sverige has partnered with CommScope to offer its customers a new Android TV-powered set-top box.

The VIP5702W delivers UHD 4K video, and comes with dual-band selectable Wi-Fi. It also provides users with the full Android TV experience, with access to thousands of apps via the Google Play store.

Hanna Idstam, manager TV and Media, Telenor Sverige AB, said: “We are excited to offer our customers a new TV and entertainment experience by deploying CommScope’s innovative set top solution. CommScope’s expertise in deploying solutions powered by Android TV enabled us to deliver a rich, entertainment offering that our customers have come to expect.”

Phil Cardy, VP International PLM, Home Networks, CommScope, said: “Telenor Sverige is a leading service provider that wants to grow its business with a new video offering. By using a solution powered by Android TV from the Home Networks’ business, Telenor Sverige will deliver a great viewing experience to its customers with its own branded user interface using a solution that is compact and easy to install.”

In addition to the hardware from Commscope, the live and on-demand viewing experience on the set top is powered by 24i’s software platform. This brings features such as unified search and single sign-on, and allows Telenor to design its own UI. 

Dr. Neale Foster, CEO, 24i, said: “24i is delighted to support our friends at Telenor Sverige with its on-going service enhancement, including the rollout of this new generation of Android TV set tops, powered by the same 24i software platform that brings the Telenor Sverige customer experience to existing set tops, iOS and Android mobile phones as well as Apple TV devices.”
