ADB helps enhance O2 Czech Republic’s IPTV Service

ADB today announced that it was appointed by O2 Czech Republic, the country’s largest IPTV provider, to manage a software migration resulting in advanced features and services for the operator’s subscribers. ADB won the contract by demonstrating that it could cost-effectively enhance O2’s pay-TV services by extending the operator’s original investment in ADB set-top boxes, which were first deployed in 2006. The software migration started in September 2013 and was completed at the end of March 2014.

The introduction of the new platform, O2 TV, contributed to a 10 percent year-on-year increase in new subscriptions by 31st December 2013.

ADB provided specialist software and systems integration services to help O2 migrate more than 130,000 IPTV subscribers from Alcatel-Lucent MiViewTV middleware to the platform. The new software was automatically installed on all subscribers’ set-top boxes allowing users to take advantage of new features including time shifting, remote recording and a new user interface.

“Although we had traditionally thought of ADB as a hardware provider, over recent years we have come to recognise ADB’s impressive software, services and systems integration expertise,” says David Duron, Marketing Director at O2 with responsibility for consumer services. “ADB’s team not only had the skills to make this a smooth transition for our subscribers but also delivered creative ideas and value-added services that made the entire process very cost-effective.”
