Bell Canada, the number one television provider in Canada has selected Ericsson to power its next generation multiscreen TV services.

Ericsson’s MediaFirst TV Platform solution will enable Bell to offer an enhanced, personalized and converged multiscreen TV experience to its more than 1.5 million Fibe TV and Alt TV subscribers in Canada.

The multi-year deal expands on the companies’ long-term relationship, which dates back to the 2010 launch of Bell’s Fibe TV service and deployment of Mediaroom, the world’s leading IPTV platform. When integrated with Mediaroom, MediaFirst will deliver an agile, next generation TV platform with the necessary flexibility to easily incorporate third party apps.

Ericsson’s MediaFirst TV Platform is a software-defined, media-optimized cloud-based TV platform. It provides a converged multiscreen experience including Pay TV in-home, TV Everywhere and OTT services and embraces all content sources and delivery networks. 

Rizwan Jamal, President of Residential and Small Business, Bell
We look forward to taking the game-changing Fibe TV and Alt TV even further, enabling next generation services across a wider range of devices by leveraging the innovative IPTV technologies of Ericsson MediaFirst.

Angel Ruiz, Head of Media Solutions, Ericsson 
With this increased consumer demand, service providers need to find ways to drive agile transformation within their business and ensure they have access to the technology and solutions that will help reduce operational costs and increase new revenue opportunities.
