Mexican fiber to the home (FTTH) operator TotalPlay says it will start deploying a Sagemcome HD PVR to deliver 4K TV to customers next month.
The Broadcom-based 4K PVR supports the HEVC standard, with access to 4K content. This connected device, thanks to a dual band concurrent Wi-Fi n/ac with access point capability, also can be used as an Ultra HD recorder thanks to its slot for a removable Hard Disk Drive.
It also enables seamless navigation between the various contents proposed by the operator: live TV, start over, catch up, VOD, OTT services such as Netflix, YouTube, Deezer, TuneIn and more.
“With our technology, all our clients can enjoy the best TV programs with more than 260 channels, music, movies, series and more blockbusters on demand, and a smooth navigation between TV and apps like Netflix,” said Eduardo Kuri Romo, CEO of TotalPlay. “This is a real added-value within TotalPlay’s offering with content now delivered with the highest sharpness.”
The IPTV platform in September extended its service beyond Mexico City and Guadalajara to the cities of Monterrey, Puebla and Toluca, adding ultra-broadband access to TV services and applications, VOD and time-shifted content.
The Ricardo Salinas-controlled company plans to invest $400 million to expand its footprint to a total of 22 cities and six million homes by the end of 2016.
It currently has 200,000 residential subscribers and 50,000 corporate clients
