World-Class OTT Streaming from MwareTV with Akamai
Since the onset of the pandemic, home entertainment has never been more important. Millions of users across the globe have turned to over-the-top (OTT) streaming and live TV to bring much-needed diversion and exciting content into their lives. MwareTV provides content delivery solutions designed for the TV platforms of today and tomorrow — a web brimming with rich media and millions of users that demand high-quality content in an instant. MwareTV partnered with Akamai to provide state-of-the-art technology that enables the efficient performance of streaming content to entertain, connect, and empower global viewers.
Powered by Akamai technology, MwareTV works with more than 50 operators worldwide to deliver seamless content. Whether it’s the latest episode of “The Crown” or the “Fast & Furious” franchise, today’s end users expect an uninterrupted, crystal-clear viewing experience. When it comes to choosing an OTT provider, the design of the viewing interface is another key consideration. The way we all consume content has changed so radically over the past few years, and our consumer behaviour has changed along with it.
These days, we view content on different devices and expect to see easy navigation and fresh typography. Things like decorative fonts and interactive video previews are essential for getting audience attention. It’s also important to personalise content to connect users with the stories they are most likely to engage with. MwareTV makes all of this possible by providing operators with customisable templates that can be easily modified, with no previous programming experience necessary. This is especially helpful to operators that don’t have a large budget to create the experiences their viewers crave.
“Our relationship with Akamai started a couple years ago, and the cooperation grows every year. The word partnership is often used as an empty phrase, but in our situation, you can really see it as a real partnership,” said Cees van Versendaal, COO at MwareTV. “This starts with regular contact and understanding our business, as well as always listening to our ideas and requirements to make it technically and commercially feasible.”
