Telco TV Service

A telco TV service that is designed from the outset to support the telco’s core broadband business inherently incorporates broadband to the set top box irrespective of how the broadcast channels are sourced. This enables catch-up TV, VoD, games, gambling, interactive commercial services businesses and Internet Video out of the box


This determines the basic capabilities of the set top box such as HDMI for high-definition, ethernet for VoD and broadband services, DVB-S or DVB-T tuner for satellite or DTT channels and MPEG2 or H.264 for video decoding in the processor

Telco TV Service

Applications in the Telco TV Service are driven by a Service Delivery Platform over broadband. One Service Delivery Platform can simultaneously manage and drive an integrated TV and Entertainment service to DTT/hybrid STBs, satellite/hybrid STBs, online portals and mobiles that appears seamless to the customer. Abstracting the customer experience on the devices from the business logic in the Service Delivery Platform enables capabilities such as recommendations, targeted advertising and “follow-me” video where the customer can begin watching a show on the set top box, pause it and resume watching later on their mobile phone at the same point

Tv 2 0 trends that telco tv platforms should embrace
TV 2.0 trends that Telco TV platforms should embrace

  • Ad-supported VoD

  • Interactive games including play against your friends

  • Personalisation and buddy recommendations

  • Targeted adverts and VoD recommendations based on behavour

  • Online gambling, banking, voting, shopping

  • Consume Internet Content (information, video) delivered over the top


  • They are cheaper and easier to enable than linear channels or VoD over IP

  • They play to our strengths and will deliver exclusive marketing messages

  • They are more difficult for competitors to deliver

  • Telco can deliver exclusively to the TV (rather than the free-for-all that is online)
