AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cubiware, a Warsaw, Poland-based TiVo company (NASDAQ: TIVO), today announced that it is providing Nuevo Siglo, a Cable TV Operator in Uruguay, South America, the technology to make Nuevo Siglo one of the first cable operators in South and Central America to incorporate content accessed through premium third-party “Play or Go” apps on their STBs. This offering has been made possible with the collaboration of BOLD MSS as a platform integrator.
Through the cooperation of BOLD MSS and Cubiware, Nuevo Siglo’s customers have access to the “Play or Go” platforms from premium content providers on their hybrid STBs, in addition to their linear TV programming. These customers will receive access to full seasons of their favorite series and new content releases at the same time these shows are released over linear channels. Nuevo Siglo is also offering the “Play or Go” services integrated on its multi-device platform NSNOW, allowing users to access their content at home or on the go.
Cubiware’s middleware solution for Nuevo Siglo offers the core content management for the STB itself as well as for the other devices on the platform. Cubiware’s technology also provides the customization of the STB video player in order to be fully compatible to the “Play or Go” CDNs and security requirements.
“Thanks to the increased flexibility of content providers and confidence achieved with our solutions with Cubiware, we have developed an integration solution for Nuevo Siglo that allows it to provide high quality content for its VOD on STBs,” said Ariel Droyeski, Sales Director at BOLD MSS. “This offering is evidence of a growing trend in solutions that BOLD MSS is promoting with our customers and partners.”
“We are very excited to work with Nuevo Siglo in bringing ‘Play or Go’ platforms from the most important content distributors to their customers,” said Jakub Gorski, VP of Cubiware Product. “This technology partnership provides an enhanced entertainment experience that allows users to enjoy expanded content and top notch entertainment while in their house or on the go.”
“Cubiware is the leader in middleware and has proven to be a fantastic and innovative partner,” said Mario de Oliveira, CTO at Nuevo Siglo. “This partnership has provided to our customers VOD Premium Content from our most important linear TV content providers.”
The incorporation of the “Play or Go” contents into Nuevo Siglo’s NSNOW STB is a new step in the general development of the platform. This is an innovative service that positions Nuevo Siglo as a technology leader in Cable TV services both domestically and internationally. NSNOW has continued to grow since its inception in 2014, incorporating new services and products every year, while always considering as primary concepts the quality and security of the contents.
