MUMBAI: Technicolor, a technology leader in the media and entertainment sector, said it has won two extension contracts from Tata Sky, India‘s leading satellite operator with over eight million subscribers, for supply of set-top boxes (STBs).
Deliveries of new STBs are scheduled from the third quarter of 2013 to second quarter of 2015, while Technicolor will continue providing locally-based after-sales support to Tata Sky.
Tata Sky has granted Technicolor, until mid-2015, extension of the initial contracts for the STBs already delivered over the past years which includes the HD-enabled zapper (MediaPlay DSI715) and the SD satellite zapper (MediaPlay DSI309).
"Technicolor‘s solutions have met our expectations in terms of reliability because we want to guarantee a trouble free experience for our customers. They also help meet our Total Cost of Ownership requirement, which is key for an operator with a large subscriber base like ours. The latest agreements mark the continuation of our trusted relationship with Technicolor," said Tata Sky MD and CEO Harit Nagpal.
Technicolor‘s Connected Home division President Michel Rahier added, "We are very proud to support the commercial success of Tata Sky in its digital television services. As a long standing partner of Tata Sky, the renewal of the previous contracts awarded up to two years ago proves us that we have been able to build a strong relationship thanks to the high quality of our products."
