Reducing Churn & Increasing ARPU at O2 Czech Republic with Customized Apps
Unique viewing experience across multiple platforms and devices
A major multi service operator in an Eastern European country operating several million lines in both fixed and mobile networks including a 3G, CDMA (for data), UMTS and EDGE, enabling voice, data and video transmission.
Adding interactive features and stunning UIs to keep hundreds of thousand of TV customers happy
When the project started several years ago, the new service employed SmartLabs’ Linux STBs supporting IPTV/OTT/DVB services. The bespoke frontend app was developed and built on an elegant design created by one ofO2’s partners.
The sophisticated UX design leveraged complex animation effects, which delivered outstanding performance thanks to SmartLabs software and middleware solution capabilities. We integrated the app with the existing and complex backend using their API.
Later in the project we integrated and deployed the new apps with platforms such as LG and Samsung SmartTVs, as well as Android TV STBs. We are continuously adding new highly anticipated services and integrations, such as HBO MAX VoD library, helping 02 increase the attractiveness of their TV service.
The next step in the project was the unique migration of STB users from a Linux to Android TV environment.
