Telenet Play Sports
providing the ultimate on-screen experience
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.
To provide this complete TV experience, Telenet needed to build three different applications. They were looking for a long-term partner who could develop high-quality applications with minimal effort.
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 ...
We’d be happy to tell you more about our work, as well as the possibilities for your organization.
