TeleCentro Introduces Smart IPTV STBs In Argentina

Building on its partnership with Netflix, TeleCentro’s STBs will give direct access to the popular subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service as well as the in-house VOD platform, TeleCentro Play, which also includes FOX content.

According to TeleCentro, the STB, which will be initially distributed among its new customers, will soon add on-demand content from HBO, Cartoon Network, Space, TNT and ESPN platforms, as well as incorporating a YouTube app.

Through the move, the Argentinean company aims to boost its IPTV service – the cornerstone of its triple-play package - with over-the-top (OTT) access to premium content.

“We are betting on technological innovation, which is why we’re now adding these two apps to our STBs so our clients can access their favourite content with a single click,” said Sebastian Pierri, GM, TeleCentro. “We are listening to the market needs, and our clients are increasingly consuming content through different platforms. We are offering a single solution for our customers to enjoy an entertainment offering adapted to their needs.”
