Swedish TV apps specialist Accedo has joined forces with US firm Minerva to offer service providers an integrated solution which combines Accedo’s rich TV application solutions and content with Minerva’s iTVFusion software platform.
Under the terms of the agreement, Accedo will become a preferred partner of Minerva for app stores and applications, and Minerva will resell Accedo’s application services worldwide.
“Through this agreement, we’ll be able to offer a feature rich solution that enables pay-TV operators to differentiate their service – critical in today’s competitive markets,” said Jean-Georges Fritsch, EVP of Products for Minerva.
“We look forward to working with Accedo to leverage our platform across Smart TVs and other connected consumer devices.”
Accedo’s app store includes numerous applications designed for use and consumption on the television set, including casual gaming, news, sports, weather, and social media integration.
These applications will be accessible through Minerva’s set-top-box client and deployable across xDSL, FTTH, and HFC networks.
Minerva’s iTVFusion platform has been shortlisted for ‘Best Service Delivery Platform for IPTV & OTT TV’ at this year’s TV Connect Awards, taking place in London on March 20th. For more information please click here.
