aioTV, a global provider of OTT middleware, announced UNE EPM Telecomunicaciones S.A., a major telecom operator in Colombia with over 2 million customers will utilize the aioTV platform to combine IP and OTT video with traditional multi-channel content into a single customer experience across devices without replacing the set-top-boxes already in the customer’s home.
“Any content, one spot, any device - is what we do,” said Mike Earle, CEO, aioTV. “MVPDs globally have shared the need to unify content on the TV; they want a branded experience giving their subscribers easy access to Internet-delivered video without having to switch inputs on their TV. UNE’s thought leadership around consolidating complexity was a natural fit for our pass-through video technology.”
