With this new proposition, precursing a more immersive television experience, we will contribute to making ‘Watching TV' an enticing experience again, and also offering entertainment for the whole family. We look forward to presenting this cross-content approach to our operator customers, who are looking for differentiation in their very competitive markets and ways to keep their existing TV, Fixed, and Mobile customer bases highly engaged. ”
