According to the information reported on the specialized website Minha Operadora and others, the Brazilian group Grupo Globo would be planning to launch a new streaming box, which it would have inscribed at Anatel, the entity that regulates the telecommunications market in Brazil.
Minha Operadora reports that the device would be called ‘Globo.com’, although, in the document that the Brazilian company granted Anatel, it is called ‘Globo TV’. In case the company launches it, the IPTV device would join other products already available, such as Globoplay (OTT), and the group’s FTA and pay-TV channels. According to the specialized website Insiraficha, the STB model is ‘Kaon KSTB4184’. At the same time, the website reports that the device’s SoC is ‘M3528 da ALi’, and it has RCA and HDMI outputs, and even 512 MB of RAM and Flash memory. The DRM of the streaming box would be from Verimatrix. According to Insiraficha, the streaming box’s remote control includes a direct access button to an OTT, which was not reported.
In case Globo launches its new product, it would join Claro (America Movil), which has already launched its new Claro Box TV in Brazil and confirmed its intentions to launch it in other markets in which it operates in Latin America, including Colombia, where it is already available. Minha Operadora reports that, up to now, no Globo referents have expressed themselves about an eventual launch of this type. Nextv News Latin America has also asked Grupo Globo for this information, although they have not expressed themselves yet.
