Tivibu Web

TTNet’s TV service Tivibu has been launched on 24th February 2010.  Today, the number of subscribers of the service has exceeded 1 million. In 2011, Tivibu has been awarded by IP&TV World Forum for Best IPTV, Hybrid or Connected TV Service Growth Achievement. Actually, the name of the service has changed to Tivibu Web later on following the announcement of Tivibu Cep (Tivibu Mobile) and Tivibu Ev (IPTV) services.  In other words, multi-screen service Tivibu is available on 4 screens i.e. PC, smartphone, tablet and TV. There are a total of 113 live channels and over 4000 VOD content available on the platform. Tivibu has been the main driving force behind training of the Turkish audiences on consuming VOD content and using time-shift feature (i.e. Pause TV). Catch-up TV service is quite popular since Turkish audiences love watching various local series broadcasted during the season. Tivibu Web platform is based on Windows Silverlight technology. The subscribers can either watch it via web site or by downloading the client to their Windows platform. Unfortunately, it is not available on Mac platforms. Thanks to the Smooth Streaming technology, the quality of the media is decided according to the bandwidth of user to ensure the best possible viewing experience. Existing bitrates are 300 Kbps, 600 Kbps and 1000 Kbps. The main weakness of the proposition is the lack of sports content. The service is only available within Turkey. (more…)
