Sweden’s largest cable television operator, Com Hem, has selected the SeaChange Adrenalin multi-screen video platform for its new TiVo-based ‘TV everywhere’ service, which it is in the process of rolling out.
Com Hem’s new offering will include broadcast TV channels, video-on-demand (VoD), catch-up TV and start-over for Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB)-based TiVo set-top boxes, LAN set-top boxes, smartphones and tablets. Adrenalin is based on an open service-oriented architecture which delivers video to devices across multiple network types. Com Hem will use the Adrenalin video platform to integrate and manage a wide range of third-party components.
Com Hem is the fastest growing TV distributor in Sweden. About 40 percent, or 1.75 million, of Sweden’s households are connected to Com Hem's network. This gives them access to Sweden's widest range of TV channels, HDTV, and TV on Demand, as well as high speed broadband and fixed line services. Com Hem is the latest European operator to choose SeaChange’s next generation Adrenalin as a foundation for its VOD services.
