ORS selects 3SS and Skyworth for Android TV 4K service
ORS, the technical services subsidiary of Austrian public broadcaster ORF, has selected German software solutions provider 3SS and Chinese hardware manufacturer Skyworth Digital for the next-generation set-top boxes.
The 4K Android TV boxes, enabling reception of the hybrid Austrian DTH satellite and DTT simpliTV platform, provide an advanced viewer-centric user experience created by 3SS. The Skyworth 4K hybrid Android TV satellite box is now available for simpliTV customers, in addition to the Skyworth 4K hybrid DTT box introduced in January 2022.
Both boxes offer simpliTV subscribers the latest 4K DVB and OTT viewing features, including Google Play Store apps and Dolby surround sound.
With ORS’ commitment to satisfying the needs of the widest possible audience, traditional viewers and streaming fans, live TV is at the heart of simpliTV, with over 100 channels. The first screen that appears is the TV player, allowing instant access to live broadcasts. Additionally, with a simple press of the left and right directional buttons on the remote, the user can navigate either to content discovery or to the TV guide where streaming options can be explored.
Live TV, PVR, time shift, reboot, catch up and recording features are all available, as well as reverse EPG, mini-EPG and ‘continue watching’ even when changing devices and sources of content.
