Technicolor Connected Home has announced a milestone of shipping 10 million Android TV STBs since 2016.
The firm, citing figures from Industry Research, said that global demand for Android TV STBs is projected to grow at a CAGR of 24.8 per cent between 2021-2026, with strong demand in Asia and EMEA.
Video Product Director, Technicolor Connected Home, Mounir Toutah said: “As the number one provider of Android TV STBs in the world, Technicolor Connected Home has worked successfully to meet network service provider (NSP) deployment requirements across the globe over the past year. We have met these demands despite the production and supply chain challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Technicolor Connected Home has invested heavily in leveraging tech for network service providers (NSPs) with a goal to help them deliver “seamless connectivity and premium entertainment experiences to consumers.”
The company’s NSP partners include Euskaltel, Altibox, Telecom Italia and Bharti Airtel among others.
Toutah said: “Subscribers appreciate the convenience of streamlining access to video services through NSP provided set-top boxes in the home as well as the added benefit of not incurring additional costs for retail equipment. Android TV has played an important role in improving the overall user experience and level of customer satisfaction, thus reducing churn, while elevating the reach of OTT content providers.”
