Simply Global TV signs IPTV set-top deal


UK-based IPTV specialist CompleteTV has announced a partnership with Simply Global TV to provide a hybrid IPTV and digital terrestrial television (DTT) service.

CompleteTV’s set-top box will integrate Simply Global TV’s IPTV channels with Freeview, and allow viewers to record and pause live TV using an in-built digital TV recorder.

John Donovan, managing director at Simply Global TV, said “the guys from CompleteTV really understand our business goals of addressing the widest audience with the most diverse content from around the world”.

“The Simply Global TV service addresses everything the user needs – a simple interface, mainstream content, recording capabilities, and specialist programming unavailable anywhere else.”

Philip Smith, chief marketing officer at CompleteTV, said: “The work we have done with Simply Global TV addresses our combined vision of a seamless TV experience – combining IPTV over the public internet with Freeview broadcast services.

“IPTV over the public internet truly is the future, and the work we have done with Simply on advanced buffering and integrated services demonstrates the potential of such services.”
