Using VO's end-to-end, fully managed, and cloud-based TV service solution, Guigo TV can securely deliver live channels, including ethnic, finance, kids, fashion, and sports content, to subscribers on every screen.
"As the operator of Brazil's first and only OTT subscription service with live television channels, we are setting a new precedent for superior TV Everywhere experiences," said Renato Svirsky, Director at Guigo TV. "We chose VO's end-to-end TV platform because it is flexible and cost-effective, speeding up the time to market for our new service. Hosting our offering on the cloud will allow us to seamlessly add features in the future, as we continue to enhance the streaming experience for customers."
VO's TVaaS platform provides Guigo TV with a complete solution for secure OTT delivery, including applications for smartphones, tablets, and computers.
