TVN24 GO, a new TVN Discovery Polska service, debuted on 27 May 2019. It is addressed to a wide variety of people who need constant access to information and press content, and above all – to young people who have not used linear television so far. The new service allows access to live content (TVN24 and TVN24 BiS channels with the timeshift option) and to a wide library of VOD content, including such popular programs as “Fakty”, “Kropka nad i” or “Szkło kontaktowe”.
The technological part of the TVN24 GO project was carried out by Atende Software, from February to May 2019, based on the proprietary OTT platform – redGalaxy. As part of the project, applications for the following platforms were provided: Web, Android, iOS, Samsung SmartTV, LG webOS and AndroidTV. An important element of the website is also the built-in eCommerce module – content is available based on the subscription model, as a component of transparent packages: one-day non-renewable, monthly cyclic and annual cyclic.
TVN24 GO application environment uses the AWS cloud (Amazon Web Services). In combination with the redGalaxy CDN system, used to distribute multimedia content, it allows virtually unlimited scalability and readiness even for the highest user load. In effect, simplified architecture and minimization of external integration makes the platform ready for quick “cloning” and allows for creating further, thematic video portals.
“The TVN24 GO project is the first such a large implementation of redGalaxy in the AWS cloud environment. We have created and delivered a solution prepared for the largest events that perfectly fit into the trend of thematic OTT portals. “- says Przemysław Frasunek, director of the Multimedia Solutions Department at Atende Software.
Atende Software is the leader in the development of technologies for Internet TV. The OTT platform offered under the redGalaxy brand is used by the largest broadcasters and telecommunication operators in Poland, including TVN S.A., Telewizja Polska S.A., ITI Neovision S.A., P4 sp. z o.o., Polkomtel sp. z o.o. Every day, millions of users of the most important VOD services in Poland use redGalaxy technology.
