Accedo, the TV application solutions provider, has partnered with Spainâ€™s largest TV network, Mediaset EspaÃ±a, to launch its OTT TV service called â€˜Miteleâ€™ on Samsung Smart TVs. The service is powered by Accedoâ€™s application management solution, Accedo AppGrid, making it both highly configurable and flexible.
A compilation of Mediaset EspaÃ±aâ€™s most popular TV content, all in high definition, Mitele went live on December 3 and comprises TV series, news and a dedicated channel for Big Brother. Initially exclusive to Samsung Smart TV viewers, the service will launch on additional devices in 2016.
â€œIt was particularly important to us to launch Mitele on Samsung Smart TVs ahead of the holiday season when most people have more time to watch,â€ says Jorge MartÃn Ibarra, Development Director, Mediaset EspaÃ±a. â€œAccedo AppGridâ€™s flexible and modular approach to application management enables us to stay ahead of the curve while remaining cost-effective by maximising our traffic and usage.â€
The Mitele application was developed using the Accedo VIA Development Kit (VDK) and connected to Accedo AppGrid for maximum cloud configurability. Using these solutions,
Mediaset can update and customize the application dynamically, according to user behaviour and extend in line with their business growth.
