KabelKiosk enlists multiple OTT vendors for wholesale TV service

KabelKiosk, a German provider of white-label TV services owned by Eutelsat, is preparing to launch a new wholesale over-the-top (OTT) TV service later this year based on solutions from many of the industry’s biggest names.

The new service will enable KabelKiosk’s roster of around 300 affiliates to operate their own OTT video services for iOS and Android mobile devices, HbbTV set-top boxes and PCs/Macs.

Features available on the platform will include linear TV, video-on-demand, EPG, restart TV, and catch-up TV. KabelKiosk plans to offer substantial customisation options for the platform to its customers.

Parties involved in building the service for KabelKiosk include Israeli firm Tvinci (delivery platform), Harmonic (ingestion), Broadpeak (CDN), Playready (DRM), Marlin (DRM) and Rovi (VOD).
