ORS has chosen 3SS and Skyworth for its Android TV 4K service

Tech Highlights:

  • Both boxes offer simpliTV subscribers the latest features in 4K DVB and OTT viewing, including Google Play Store apps and Dolby surround sound. With ORS’ commitment to satisfy the needs of the widest possible audience, traditional TV viewers and streaming fans alike, live TV is at the heart of simpliTV, with over 100 channels. The first screen to appear is the TV player, enabling instant access to live broadcasts. Additionally, with one press of the remote control’s left and right direction buttons, the user can navigate either to Content Discovery, or to the TV Guide where streaming options can be explored.

  • ORS, the technical services subsidiary of Austrian public broadcaster ORF, has chosen 3SS, a German software solutions provider, and Skyworth Digital, a Chinese hardware manufacturer, for next-generation set-top boxes. The 4K Android TV boxes, which support the hybrid Austrian DTH satellite and DTT platform simpliTV, provide a sophisticated viewer-centric user experience designed by 3SS. The Skyworth 4K hybrid Android TV satellite box, which complements the Skyworth 4K hybrid DTT box introduced in January 2022, is now available to simpliTV customers.

Live TV, PVR, time-shift, restart, catch-up and recording functionalities are all available, plus backward EPG, mini-EPG and ‘Continue Watching’ even when switching devices and content sources.
