Raymundo Fernández, Co CEO of the Mexican operator Megacable, announced that the company has already begun offering a new streaming package, which is directly integrated into its traditional pay TV offer; on the first day of the Dataxis virtual event, Nextv Series Mexico 2021. “You need to have an STB for linear and interactive channels, and on top of that package we offer the different apps“, he explained during his participation in the panel “OTT super-aggregation and the Android revolution“.
In March 2021, the company launched XVIEW +, a platform based on Android TV that merges the content of the main OTTs with the channels of the pay TV plan and the possibility of downloading more apps from the Google Play store. Now, subscribers can choose between paying an individual package or an integrated streaming combo.
“We wanted to base ourselves on Android TV because it easily interacted with the world of streaming and apps“, Fernández also said. As he detailed, XVIEW + currently has 1.2 million subscribers, while its traditional product, XVIEW, has already exceeded 2 million.
