Telenor moves multi-screen TV delivery to Ericsson platform

Swedish firm Ericsson has won a contract with the local division of Norwegian telco Telenor to replace the latter’s legacy TV platform with its own Multiscreen TV platform for the delivery of all future TV and media services.

The deal involves systems integration and deployment of the new platform, which will deliver interactive TV experiences including catch-up TV on multiple screens and devices, companion screen interaction with content for advanced search, and social activity.

Mats Lundquist, Director Broadband & TV Telenor Sweden, said: “Sweden is a highly advanced TV market, with a proliferation of OTT providers using Sweden as a pilot market for new TV services. Meeting our customers’ expectations for TV services on any devices, anywhere through a solution that offers consistent, high quality TV experiences is imperative.”

Pay-TV growth was minimal for the telco in 2012, with just 27,000 subscribers added over the course of the year to reach a total of 284,000, of which the majority receive cable TV through its Canal Digital subsidiary, although some receive IPTV via broadband provider Bredbandsbolaget (B2).
