Seeking to broaden its video programming lineup further, Taiwan Broadband Communications is expanding its OTT video offerings to encompass live TV on open devices and video-on-demand.

In a prepared statement, Taiwan Broadband CEO Himmy Chen said the cableco will deploy its new TBC Go service. TBC is working with longtime partner Nagra and its OpenTV Suite to implement the service.

TBC is using NAGRA's OpenTV Suite as the basis of TBC GO. Nagra said the suite features several integrated components, including OpenTV Experience, OpenTV Platform, OpenTV OS and OpenTV Player, designed to simplify viewers' access to content on multiple devices. These modules should enable TBC to accelerate deployment, enhance performance, innovate, scale and monetize, according to Nagra.

Although TBC was one of cable's earlier OTT adopters, it's certainly not the last. A veritable Who's Who of cablecos, such as Comcast with Netflix, have followed suit with their own services and partnerships.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
