DELTA, the Netherlands-based provider of Internet, TV, telephony and energy, is deploying a set-top box (STB) application from Hilversum-based Stoneroos for its new all IP-based service model.
Stoneroos developed a large number of functionalities for the STB. Packages offered by DELTA now include over 140 live TV channels, many of which have ‘replay TV’, allowing users to re-start live programmes and a full seven day ‘catch up’ TV service. Up to 250 hours of n-PVR storage is also provided, ensuring customers can record their favourite content. The service also offers the Stoneroos patented TV guide (also known as EPG, Electronic Program Guide).
