Advanced Universal Application

Universal application

The key part of the solution that integrates a refined and ergonomic User Interface to dive into TV content, be it linear or on-demand.

The app fully replaces the remote control by providing much more visual navigation to directly choose and interact with content while it is displayed on the TV set. It also provides easier access to STB setup, settings, troubleshooting and quality checks.
