Telenet Play Sports

Play Sports is the next chapter in our story with Telenet. As the Belgian pioneer in on-demand digital television, Telenet wants to offer its customers unlimited access to their favorite shows. Wherever and whenever, the viewer should be able to watch TV on each platform and every screen.

The Issue

After Yugo and Yelo Play, Telenet wanted a third high-quality app to provide a complete TV experience.

What we did

Since we developed both Telenet YUGO TV and Yelo Play, it made perfect sense that Telenet would also entrust us with the newest sports dedicated platform. Using existing code bases enabled us to rapidly develop a new app for different platforms. The app is available for web, Android and iOS (TV, mobile and tablet).

Proving the concept

For several years now, our Telenet Product Team has been collaborating with Telenet to make their dream come true. We’ve developed both Telenet YUGO TV and Yelo Play, and have been responsible for the maintenance of these platforms ever since.

So it made perfect sense that Telenet would also entrust us with the newest sports dedicated platform: Play Sports. As soon as Telenet saw the results of our PoC (Proof of Concept), they decided to team up once again.

Multiple screens and devices

We developed the platform in Native technologies: Swift, Java, Kotlin and React. The app is available for Web, Android and iOS (TV, mobile and tablet). We’ ve benefited greatly from developing in our shared codebases, since the application needed to serve similar features as Telenet Yelo and YUGO TV. Concretely, this means that we have to adjust or add a feature just once while activating it for several platforms. No duplication of effort, no waste of time and no extra cost. Great, isn’t it?

But the experience does not end there. We also added a Chromecast Receiver to cast from the mobile Play Sports and YUGO TV app to a television screen.

Welcome to the family

After Yugo and Yelo Play, we believe Play Sports to be the perfect addition to the family. On top of that, we’ve achieved this result without too much effort. Using existing code bases enabled us to rapidly develop a new app for different platforms. That’s why we can’t wait to find out what Telenet is up to ...
