Zurich, 13.09.2019 – ZATTOO presents its End-To-End White Label IPTV platform extended by Android TV, live at the IBC in Amsterdam, and shows the new 1&1 TV-Stick for the first time at the ZATTOO booth G06 in hall 14.
Custom Launcher technology from Android TV will be used to expand the ZATTOO IPTV platform. Thanks to this pre-configured control software, providers like 1&1 can customize the selection of pre-installed Android applications and add their own applications.
Android TV applications available on the new 4K TV stick include the Google Search Assistant, YouTube and Google Play Movies. The stick complements the 1&1 Digital TV applications and devices, which have been successful in the market for two years.
With the launch of the TV-Stick, pioneer ZATTOO is also one of the first TV-As-A-Service providers in the Android TV™ Operator Tier segment to have positioned successful installations in the market.
Patrick Schnoor, Head of Entertainment & Services at 1&1 Telecom GmbH: "We want to provide our customers both in content and technologically, with a state-of-the-art and future-oriented TV service. The cooperation with ZATTOO and the new 1&1 TV-Stick will support us to achieve this goal."
Gernot Jaeger, Chief Officer B2B at ZATTOO: "We are very pleased that 1&1 is the first B2B customer with Android TV to be live on a 4K-enabled stick. For 1&1 as well as for the end customers, this is a great addition and expansion: more apps, 4K and the already familiar functions such as live pause, catch-up, cloud recordings – it' s a great package. And we're looking forward to the upcoming innovations we're working on with 1&1."
Based on ZATTOO's White Label IPTV platform, 1&1 Digital TV from 1&1 has been the first German fixed network provider to offer an entirely cloud-based TV service already since 2017, with innovative functions for a large number of devices and platforms. In addition to the new 1&1 TV-Stick with Android TV, 1&1 offers access via the 1&1 TV box as well as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, iOS, Android, all popular browsers and Google Chromecast as well as Android TV-based Smart TVs.
