The TV market is getting more and more fragmented every day. We can’t expect customers to pay for three or four different content services in addition to their channel package. This is why On Demand content is a great opportunity for the distributors to take a hold of the on demand purchases with their clients - just like RiksTV did with their OTT portal named Ekstra.
When RiksTV launched their new hybrid DTT set-top box in the fall of 2012, Film was the main application in their on demand selection. Since then, Sixty has designed and developed a Disney catch-up service, a TVNorge catch-up service and Beat, a music streaming service, running on their set-top box.
The Norwegian distributor RiksTV asked us to help them create a childen friendly TV application allowing their youngest viewers to catch up on the latest episodes from the Disney universe.
You’ve probably heard of Spotify, but have you heard of Beat? Beat is a Norwegian commercial music streaming service with a competitive catalogue size and price tag. RiksTV offers the service on their hybrid set-top box.
Sixty designed and developed Beat's music player for RiksTV's hybrid set-top boxes.
C More Play is a subscription based on-demand service offering catch up content from all linear C More TV channels in addition to the Filmnet library.
Sixty designed the UX and UI, as well as developed the TV application. The end result is running on RiksTV's set top boxes, available for all C More customers.
