Telstra signs hot Swedish dev for live apps

IPTV dev Accedo signed to BigPond

Telstra is working with Swedish IPTV apps provider Accedo Broadband to develop BigPond TV applications for multiple TV and blu-ray platforms.

The new applications are powering the delivery of seven Telstra BigPond TV channels to LG and Samsung Connected TV sets and blu-ray players across Australia. Accedo, which worked with the likes of BT and PCCW, describes the deployment as one of the first OTT TV applications from a pay-TV operator in the world.

Telstra is also using Google’s Widevine adaptive streaming technology as part of the deployment.

The partnership between Accedo and Telstra will extend to a range of application projects currently under development.

“Telstra has a strong position in Australia and its innovative approach means it is always looking for new ways to expand its offerings,” said Accedo Broadband Asia VP Mark Adams. ®
