TV as a Service

A complete multi-tenant TV platform to offer TV to your customer base

Companies around the world request us to start their TV service when, for different reasons, they are unable to start it themselves.

How TV as a service (TVaaS) works

TV as a Service (TVaaS) is a cloud-based solution that allows users to access television programming and related services over the internet. Here’s how it typically works:

  • Content Acquisition: TVaaS providers acquire the rights to television programming from various content providers, such as TV networks and studios.
  • Content Processing: The content is then transcoded by the TVaaS provider to ensure that it is compatible with their platform and can be streamed over the internet.
  • Platform Development: The TVaaS provider develops a platform that allows users to access the television programming and services. This platform typically includes Apps, user interfaces, a content management system and subscriber management.
  • Content Delivery: The television programming is delivered to users over the internet, typically through a web browser or a dedicated app. Users can access the programming on a range of devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and smart TVs.
  • Subscription: End users subscribe to the TVaaS service and pay a monthly fee for access to the programming and services. The TVaaS provider may offer different subscription packages with varying levels of content and features.
  • Analytics: The TVaaS provider collects data on user behavior and preferences, which can be used to improve the service and offer more personalized content recommendations.

Overall, TVaaS provides a convenient and cost-effective way for users to access television programming and related services over the internet, without the need for expensive hardware or infrastructure.


An example of a successful TV as a Service in the USA: the Managed IPTV service

In the USA MwareTV offers TV as Service by combining 200 national and regional channels and the MwareTV platform and Apps in a single contract. ISPs and MVNO’s could offer the TV service to their subscriber base in weeks instead of years. 


Benefits of TVaaS

There are several benefits for companies like an ISPs to use TVaaS instead of investing in their own TV solutions:

  • Cost-effective: Implementing a TV service requires significant capital investments in hardware, software, and infrastructure. By using a TVaaS, ISPs can avoid the upfront costs associated with building their own solution, and instead pay a monthly subscription fee for access to the service.
  • Reduced Time to Market: Developing a TV solution from scratch can be a time-consuming process, and requires significant expertise in the industry. With TVaaS, ISPs can launch their TV service much faster, as the provider has already built and tested the solution.
  • Increased Flexibility: TVaaS providers offer a range of customizable packages, allowing ISPs to tailor their TV service to meet the needs of their customers. This flexibility means that ISPs can quickly adapt to changes in the market and respond to customer demands.
  • Scalability: TVaaS solutions are designed to be scalable, meaning that they can easily handle fluctuations in demand. This is particularly important for ISPs, who need to be able to accommodate the needs of a growing customer base.
  • High-Quality Service: TVaaS providers typically have a lot of experience in delivering high-quality video streaming services, and have invested in the necessary technology and infrastructure to support this. This means that ISPs can provide their customers with a reliable and high-quality service, without having to invest in the same technology themselves.
  • Improved Security: TVaaS providers typically have robust security measures in place to protect their customers’ data and personal information. By using a TVaaS, ISPs can take advantage of these security measures, without having to invest in building their own security infrastructure.
