Evolution Digital has introduced a new white-label solution for Tier 2 and 3 cable operators to offer virtual skinny bundles to subscribers.
The eVUE-NOW! solution will allow small and midsized cable operators to stream live programming to their customers’ iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as OTT boxes including Roku, Apple TV and Android TV.
The eVUE-NOW! app, which will be uniquely branded by Evolution’s operator clients, will also include a cloud DVR with 20 hours of HD program storage.
The Centennial, Colorado-based vendor has made significant inroads into the U.S. Tier 2 and 3 cable market, offering solutions that enable operator customers to more feasibly deliver more advanced video solutions.
The company announced two weeks ago that 23 U.S. operators were using its eVue-TV product, which allows MSOs to deliver IP video into homes.
“Using our app-based service streamlines deployments and helps providers capture back a market that has steered towards virtual MVPD subscriptions,” said Chris Egan, CEO and co-founder at Evolution Digital, in a statement.
“Furthermore, eVUE-NOW! is an inherently better product than competitors’ as it features universal search across all content, as well as video-on-demand and all local broadcast channels,” Egan added. “eVUE-NOW!, bundled with the operator’s broadband offering, can be delivered at a better price point to both the operator and the consumer while supplying the viewer with the content and functionalities that they want in a video service.”
