A Market Fit for IPTV
IPTV Latvian satellite television industry has just launched a new web-based service for global users. The country’s leading cable and digital communication operator, Kabel International, along with its partner and satellite TV service provider, degulcom, has partnered with IPTV Croatia to bring IPTV service to the region. This innovative web-based IPTV solution offers subscribers access to hundreds of live channels through Sling Media and DirecTV. degulcom will also provide its subscribers with the same IPTV services for free. The companies claim that their service that is the blend of two powerful traditional television services – DirecTV and its own Sling Media – will offer customers more than one hundred channels of live broadcast television.
degulcom offers a wide range of IPTV solutions to customers across Europe. Its core business is in raising the quality and variety of digital entertainment. It offers both standard cable services and Sling Media through its Slingbox IPTV gateway. Its prime focus however is on offering high-speed broadband Internet through its MRO platform. Customers can get Internet via a digital cable network using a free satellite dish, known as M-video, which transmits IPTV programs to cable sets or home televisions.
degulcom has partnered with the satellite TV service provider of the French company, MTI, for the launch of the IPTV Latvian channel. The launch is planned to be launched in autumn of this year. The goal is to launch it in at least ten countries by the end of 2021, and perhaps more. Two of the countries already known to have plans to launch IPTV channels in the fall are Romania and Moldova.
degulcom’s Sling Media IPTV gateway, or S-video, is based on Freeview technology and is similar to Dish Network’s Sling Media. The launch will mark the first time that regulon can offer Freeview channels through its S-video technology. The launch will also mark the first time that the S-video system will be compatible with Dish Network’s version of Freeview. Dish Network’s version of Freeview is known as Freeview Live. degulcom plans to launch an improved version of Sling Media in the future.
degulcom will initially offer four different IPTV platforms to customers in Europe: Romania, Moldova, Hungary, and Norway. Other IPTV solutions from the company are also being developed by other countries in Europe and Asia. Plans are in the works for additional IPTV solutions from the company. Other IPTV players include France’s Equipe telecom and Germany’s Wirtschafts TV.
Romania is an ideal location for a business-to-business digital television system
Because it has both a low-cost infrastructure in place and the infrastructure required for digital subscriber lines (DSPs). It is a great location for a system due to the low population density and high-speed internet availability. Many cable companies in the area already offer digital TV services, including Sky Digital, Vodafone, and Teletext. However, there are still areas in Romania where cable companies would need to develop digital subscriber lines (DSPs) in order to provide IPTV services. Some of the possible locations for deployment include the cities of Bovespa, Baglioni, Mureslav, and Botozous, as well as Southeastern Europe. Other possible locations could be in the far east and the coastal region.
As far as programming is concerned, Romanian audiences are accustomed to watching European TV programs. This makes it easier for IPTV operators in Romania to launch IPTV services that feature popular European TV channels. The major international TV stations in Romania like Euro TV, TVHD, Andreev, and RenesTV can also support the digital revolution. Viewers of these channels may be attracted to a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) gateway rather than subscribing to cable television. There are many advantages to this option, including cost savings and flexibility. The IPTV service provider can easily provide an application that enables the subscriber to use the digital television service without any additional hardware.
The final piece of equipment required for a successful IPTV deployment in Romania would be an IPTV gateway. An IPTV gateway simply forwards data from a digital TV source to a receiver, like a PC. If you’re interested in using an IPTV gateway, then you should know that most gateways have been developed by professionals who already have the necessary expertise.
