Enhancement of the TV customer experience

Berlin, 15 October 2015. The Tele Columbus Group, the third largest German cable network operator, today announced that it entered into a cooperation agreement with ProSiebenSat.1 Group for Video on Demand (VoD) services. Starting from mid-2016, maxdome subscription VoD will become an important layer of Tele Columbus’ planned Advanced TV platform.

With its planned Advanced TV platform, Tele Columbus will enhance the customer experience by further innovative features such as interactive, time-shift and multi-screen TV usage. By the integration of maxdome to its platform, Tele Columbus customers will have access to movies, series and documentaries out of Germany’s largest online video library. The launch is planned for mid 2016, and the content can then be accessed via the new cable receivers provided by Tele Columbus.

About Tele Columbus

The SDAX listed Tele Columbus Group is one of Germany‘s largest cable network operators. Via its origins - individual regional cable network operators that were merged into Tele Columbus - the company dates back to 1972. About 2.8 million connected households in Germany use Tele Columbus' TV signals and, increasingly, digital broadcast packages, Internet and voice connections provided via high-performance broadband cable. As a national provider with a regional focus and a partner of the housing industry, the Group is present throughout its core markets Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia as well as in numerous key regions in western Germany. In tune with current demand trends, the company is upgrading its networks in a hybrid fibre-optic infrastructure for superfast Internet connections of up to several hundred megabits per second with the state-of-the-art Internet transmission standard DOCSIS 3.0. The broadband cable caters to the entire range of innovative media applications from analogous, digital and high-definition TV to high-speed Internet and voice connections to telemetry services, tenant portals and interactive services. Beyond merely transmitting signals, Tele Columbus uses its own product platform in order to actively increase the programme offering and to develop additional services.
