Orange TV launches on unified platform in Poland

Poland’s Telekomunikacja Polska, which officially rebranded as Orange Polska last April, has unified its IPTV and DTH services onto one common middleware and content protection platform, supplied by Viaccess-Orca.

Featuring a dramatically customised user interface, Orange Polska’s new TV service includes multi-screen delivery of content and a more personalised and consistent TV-centric end-user experience on all devices, as well as some additional functionalities to its DTH customers.

The service’s delivery platform is described as being the most technologically advanced within the France Telecom Group, and offers the only universal STB in that group as well.

Earlier this year, Viaccess-Orca provided a unified service platform to Orange France for the migration of its pay-TV customers from separate IPTV and DTH platforms.

Orange Polska had reached 663,000 pay-TV customers by the end of the first quarter of this year, up 15% from one year previously.

Viaccess-Orca was formed only last week by the merger of Israeli-headquartered middleware provider Orca Interactive with French content protection specialist Viaccess – more details here.
