More world class content for Fetch TV subscribers
Fetch TV and Metrological have partnered to integrate the Metrological Application Platform into the Fetch service. The cloud-based Metrological Application Platform allows Fetch to seamlessly integrate premium OTT services, and niche and localized apps into a single viewer experience.
"The launch of the Metrological Application Platform will open up a new world of content to Fetch subscribers and provide an easy way to access the things they love to watch, all in one place." - Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV
An expanded TV App Store for Fetch subscribers
Metrological's cloud-based Application Platform, Dashboard, and App Manager enables Fetch to onboard, monetize, and optimize the lifecycle of apps across their set-top boxes (STBs). With user-friendly web tools, Fetch has everything in hand to manage the app line up in real-time and to integrate selected apps seamlessly within the Fetch user interface.
"Fetch shares our view that during this unprecedented time, where more content is being watched than ever, providing an integrated, single viewer experience becomes even more essential." - Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological
Content from the Metrological App Library
Fetch subscribers now have access to a range of apps and OTT services available in Metrological's App Library, including Acorn TV, iwonder, Vevo, Vimeo, Kidoodle, The Weather Network, and hayu. These apps complement the apps that are already available on the Fetch service via native integrations.
"The worlds of traditional broadcast TV and OTT services have collided, driven by consumers’ insatiable appetite for more and varied content. As a master aggregator, Fetch is focused on constantly expanding our content offering and on delivering a truly integrated user experience. The partnership with Metrological enhances our ability to do both and provides a clear path for servicing the long tail of great content now available." - Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV
Metrological offers content providers access to the open Lightning Software Development Kit (SDK) for quick app development, with a single app build facilitating distribution to a global footprint of operators. Fetch also utilizes the Lightning Framework to enhance the performance of the Fetch user interface. The framework uses WebGL for rendering and is full of smart optimizations to get the most out of the devices’ GPU and CPU. This accelerates rendering the UI, resulting in noticeably smoother transitions and animations.
"Metrological has developed market-leading technology and is clearly positioned as the world’s leading cloud-based TV application platform. Fetch is thrilled to join leading Tier 1 operators, like Comcast, Liberty Global, and Vodafone, in embracing the Metrological platform." - Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV
Australia and New Zealand
Fetch has deployed the Metrological Application Platform on its existing service in Australia and has secured rights for the New Zealand market. Fetch is working with Metrological and its partners to expand the portfolio of local and international apps, to be available for Metrological’s global footprint of operators.
"We are proud to work with Fetch to provide subscribers with a seamless and unified viewing experience, and even more of the world-class content they crave. Now more than ever, consumers want access to long tail OTT apps, as well as niche and localized content behind one remote, and with the most compelling user experiences in real-time." - Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological
