KAONMEDIA unveils Operator Tier Android TV Oreo Set-Top Box to StarHub
: The World’s First Operator to Launch Operator Tier Android TV Oreo
 

Seongnam (Korea), 29 August, 2018 - KAONMEDIA (KOSDAQ : KAON MEDIA), a world-leading provider in Set-Top Box (STB) and Broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), is pleased to reveal the world’s first Operator Tier Android TV Oreo Set Top Box with Custom Launcher to StarHub, a leading telco and the largest pay TV operator in Singapore.

The newly released STB is based on Android TV Oreo which is poised to enhance and deliver new TV services for pay TV operators.

Android TV Oreo offers Google Assistant features which allow a user to interact fully with the TV platform via voice commands for functions such as content discovery and navigation, smart home device control and information query. These voice-powered services will eventually raise the level of user experience while accelerating intelligent services at the center of the home.

In addition, Android TV will help operators like StarHub execute on their OTT strategy amid fierce competition. Operators can integrate their own OTT platform into Android TV along with Google TV services (GTVS) for a myriad of contents from YouTube and Play Store. This dynamic range of content over TV, movies, music, and games will attract subscribers.

KAONMEDIA is a strategic partner of Google since 2013 and has been delivering Operator Tier Android TV platform successfully across the world. KAONMEDIA is fully capable of delivering a complete Android TV solution including STB hardware, software, and device management and maintenance solutions.
KAONMEDIA has proven its market competence with multiple on-going projects around the world.

“We are excited to be the first in the world to roll out an Operator Tier Android TV Oreo set top box and KAONMEDIA has been instrumental in this achievement. Launching on the Android TV platform allows us to provide our customers with a new all-in-one entertainment destination by combining the best of our extensive content catalogue and the Google Play store,” said Justin Ang, Head of Product at StarHub. “On top of this, Operator Tier Android TV Oreo offers an additional layer of functionality which is critical to giving our customers a user experience tailored to their viewing needs.”
