US telecommunications company Hotwire Communications is introducing a TV everywhere service with a platform developed by Swiss OTT and IPTV products provider Zattoo. The TV Everywhere Service will be launched in Q4.

In the initial phase, focus will be on mobile devices with iOS, Android and Windows 10 operating systems, as well as on a browser player for PC & Mac. Soon afterwards, the service will be extended to include streaming on various other devices. Along with linear Live TV and Video on Demand in SD, HD and UHD quality, the service will offer interactive functionality such as instant restart, time shift, catchup TV, network DVR.

For the market entry in the US, Zattoo will now deploy a central “TV Hub” in the US as well. It will be hosted in Hotwire Communications’ co-location facility in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The scalability of Zattoo’s proprietary technology and Hotwire Communications’ video headend and data centre facilities with excellent connectivity make the newly established TV Hub the ideal basis to serve additional operators in the Americas, Zattoo said in a press release.
