Telma partners with Zattoo for IPTV rollout

13 Dec 2021

Axian Group has announced its Madagascan subsidiary Telecom Malagasy (Telma) is using an end-to-end, fully hosted and managed TV-as-a-Service solution provided by Zattoo to offer set-top box and app-based IPTV and OTT services. Telma’s new TV service comes with a wide range of features including nPVR with seven-day catch up and instant restart. All of this is enabled through Zattoo-developed white label applications for web, mobile devices (Android Mobile & iOS), Chromecast and a Telma-branded Android TV Operator Tier set-top box.

Telma CCO Bertrand Lacroix commented: ‘From the outset, Zattoo proved it had the technical capabilities and expertise to help us achieve our ambitious goal of launching a fully-fledged IPTV service within five months in the middle of a global pandemic. Zattoo delivered on that promise … The greatest bonus of all is that customer registrations for the TV service are already many times higher than our initial projections.’
