Italy's Tivusat and Vewd partner on new HbbTV operator apps

Tuesday 11 September 2018 | 13:44 CET | News
Tivu, the company behind Italian satellite TV platform Tivusat, has partnered with Norway-based OTT software provider Vewd to become the world's first operator to deploy an HbbTV Operator App (OpApp). Tivu's OpApp, called Tivuon, creates a virtual set-top box with an operator's own UI and applications to offer a more engaging and branded user experience, said the partners in a statement. When the STB is activated on the network, the customer automatically receives the Tivuon app, which turns the device into a customised Tivusat experience.
