Dutch Kabelnoord expands TV offering with Vinson mobile OTT solution

Dutch cable operator Kabelnoord has teamed up with Vinson to expand its offering of television, telephony and internet with a mobile solution for its customers. The new Kabelnoord app for smartphone and tablet provides over-the-top access to eleven premium TV channels that can be watched live and up untill a day after the original broadcast. The mobile TV app is a free OTT service available for customers with an internet subscription by Kabelnoord.

With release of the Kabelnoord TV app in the App Store, the cable company that operates in Frisia introduced its new mobile service. Customers can download the Kabelnoord TV app from the App Store to watch live television on iPad and iPhone. Both the app and its use are free, however it requires an internet connection by Kabelnoord. The app initially provides the ten most popular Dutch channels, including those of NPO, RTL and SBS. Also the popular Frisian channel Omrop Fryslân is included.

The app is equipped with Vinson's characteristic interface design and the complete set of features to enjoy content in the best user experience. The rich TV guide shows all channels that are available to watch live or catch-up for broadcasts up untill to a day before. While the seamless integrations with Facebook and Twitter make Kabelnoord TV a social happening, as friends can easily discuss and share favorite TV moments directly from the app.

For us, and certainly for our customers!” says Niek Geelhoed, Managing Director Kabelnoord.
