A1 Bulgaria taps 3SS for Android TV app

A1 Telekom Austria Group-owned Bulgarian service provider A1 Bulgaria has tapped 3 Screen Solutions to power a new app that enables viewing of its Xplore TV offering on Android TV sets. 

A1 Bulgaria is now providing OTT viewing experiences, enabled by 3SS, for owners of Android smart TVs.

This service launch kicked off phase two of a multi-country multi-brand deployment of regionalised smart TV apps for A1 Telekom Austria Group. It follows completion of Phase One, in which 3SS delivered regionalized Xplore TV apps for Samsung Tizen and LG webOS connected TVs.

Bulgarian Samsung and LG TV set owners were the first to get the new Xplore TV apps. Subsequent Tizen and webOS app deployments were carried out for Croatia, Slovenia, the Republic of North Macedonia, and Austria.

A1 Telekom Austria Group awarded the Phase One five-territory project to 3SS following a competitive RFP.

“Our collaboration with 3SS allowed us to bring the first two of our Phase One Xplore TV apps for the Bulgarian market to life in about eight months and now another four countries are live with Xplore TV apps for LG and Samsung TVs, exceptionally fast for such a multifaceted project. The brand new Android TV app for Bulgaria took only four months to develop. This is a truly powerful demonstration of what can be accomplished through partnership, and an agile way of working,” said Metodi Mladenov, team leader, ICT projects and software development services for A1 Group Team, A1 Bulgaria.

“Working with 3SS has been fantastic, with great teamwork and efficiency; we really value how collaborative and communicative everyone at 3SS has been. Enabling high-quality, harmonious user experiences across countries and languages is a complex endeavour, and we’re delighted that, powered by the 3Ready platform, it all happened in such a timeframe; we’re excited to now be embarking on Phase Two apps for our subscribers who own Android TV sets.”
