Xtra TV, Ukrainian satellite TV operator, runs a packaged OTT, so becoming hybrid. The satellite TV, as confined to a particular spot and particular screen, now becomes even more mobile and accessible to watch. For the first time ever, the satellite TV subscribers will get all the advantages of mobile viewing like live broadcast control, access to TV channels anywhere, and all this is provided at no extra fee.
June 6, 2016, new Xtra TV’s applications for smartphones and tablets appeared in App Store and Google Play . Subscribers can watch TV channels within their tariff plan without additional charge and using their smartphone or tablet wherever there is an Internet access. The television is available in Wi-Fi and mobile networks all over Ukraine (operator charges for mobile data traffic according to the tariff).
The applications provide for an automatic recording of TV channels for 7 days, an option to pause the channel and the current TV guide. In addition, there are more than a hundred of popular FM and online radio stations available.
George Barzashvili, Director at Digital Screens (company that owns the Xtra TV brand): As promised, we go on developing Xtra TV. In March, subscribers were offered an option to connect the premium movie channels like Viasat – TV 1000 Megahit, TV Premium and TV 1000 Action. In May, we announced access to all broadcasts of the European Football Championship 2016 in HD-quality on the channels “Football 1”/“Football 2” and Ukraina. And today we offer satellite TV channels to watch also on mobile devices. It is a real unprecedented case for the Ukrainian market.
