Videofutur (FR): Videofutur Platform Opens up IPTV Market for Regional ISPs


vf-blueboxCHALLENGE: In regions where Fibre is provided by small regional ISPs, offering a sophisticated TV service is a must-have to bundle into a triple-play proposition. Adding a TV service is a very complex undertaking. Smaller ISPs need a cost effective turnkey TV solution with rapid Time-to-Market.

SOLUTION: Videofutur and its partner Alsatis have built a full ‘Fibre and TV as a Service’ solution. This is evidenced by the ‘Videofutur’ service running in France that allows immediate access to the world of sophisticated TV. The TV service has a great mix of content and the latest TV features (from TVOD, SVOD to Replay services with a multi-screen experience). The core content, device and audience management systems are accessed via the cloud with simple integration points into the ISP subscriber management and billing systems.

BENEFITS: With a full ‘TV as a Service’ solution delivered by Netgem/Videofutur telcos benefit from a very quick time-to-market; typically it take less than three months to launch. The business model is very flexible and cost-effective with no minimum commitments and ‘pay-as-you-grow’. There are now 100,000 subscribers using the Videofutur solution, enjoying over 10,000 films and TV series.

NETGEM: Netgem provides Fixed and Mobile Telecom operators with #TelcoTV. #TelcoTV is a superior TV service offering intuitive navigation, simple access to the content and multiscreen viewing, in and out of the home. Netgem has 20+ deployments across the world and over five million active viewers. Netgem is the best solution provider to partner with innovative Telcos and help them win in their market.

QUOTE: “Alsatis is proud and excited to partner with Netgem in providing state-of-the-art and cost-effective Fibre to the Home which is designed and optimised for the French market,” said Vincent Sabthier, CEO of Alsatis.
