Ooredoo has announced that it has selected Metrological Application Platform to launch and manage its Mozaic TV app store. The app store will go live on Ooredoo’s set-top boxes in Qatar.
“We pride ourselves on offering innovative features and world-class entertainment packages that give our customers access to all of their content in one place,” Waleed Al Sayed, CEO of Ooredoo Qatar, said in a statement. “Ooredoo continues to deploy cutting-edge cloud solutions to deliver smart services for the people of Qatar, and this agreement with Metrological provides us with the flexibility to customize the portfolio of apps on offer, deliver an enhanced customer experience and gives us the scalability to continue to expand the digital universe of apps offered on Mozaic TV.”
Ooredoo’s Mozaic TV service combines international, Arabic and Asian satellite packages. Ooredoo’s TV app store will be integrated into the Mozaic TV user experience, which combines existing apps with an expanded app library of local apps and OTT content.
“We are pleased to provide Ooredoo with our cloud-based Application Platform, which will enable them to offer content that reflects the unique personal interests of its subscriber base,” Metrological CEO Jeroen Ghijsen said in a statement. “Metrological brings the app experience front and center with apps acting as a content feed to the main TV viewing experience. Our platform ensures that Ooredoo can expand its app offerings by leveraging the cloud instead of deploying more expensive STBs to facilitate native app solutions that can’t scale.”
