California based Entone Technologies, a leading provider of Cloud TV and Connected Home solutions, announced on Monday that it has been selected by TIM Brasil for their "Live TIM Blue Box" launch. Entone is providing a seamless blend of live free-to-air television and "over the top" (OTT) video solution to TIM, the largest mobile operator in Brazil with over 74 million subscribers.
TIM's Live TIM Blue Box comes with live off-air content and supports Netflix and YouTube applications. Entone says that its Hybrid TV solution enables service operators to cost-effectively deliver video services over any broadband network while also providing a flexible platform to launch new cloud-based applications.
“We selected Entone as part of our efforts to collaborate with leading video content suppliers. We believe these choices will help us provide a differentiated video service that enriches the connection we have with our subscribers."
- Rogerio Takayanagi, CEO, TIM Fiber
"Entone continues to gain traction with the world's leading mobile operators. As the battleground shifts from the living room to the connected consumer, we believe that mobile operators have a unique opportunity to strengthen their relationship with consumers who want to leverage mobile devices to access and control not only video services, but a growing array of home management and other related services."
- Steve Mckay, CEO, Entone
