InsysGO Assists Launch Of Estonian OTT Service Apollo TV

Postimees Grupp, an Estonian media technology company based in the capital Tallinn, has helped Insys Video Technologies launch a direct-to-consumer OTT service, Apollo TV.

Users can access over 50 live TV channels, movies, series, and other on-demand content through the VOD zone, as well as catch-up. Content recommendations then weave these different sources into a coherent service.

Insys was the technology partner for the implementation, defining and delivering the infrastructure, technology, and hardware, as well as providing maintenance and support. This was achieved through the vendor’s OTT platform InsysGO, designed to enable rapid launch of customized online video services. 

“With the launch of Apollo TV, we are keen to deliver an engaging service for our existing customers, as well as appealing to new audiences,” said Toomas Tiivel, Member of the Board at Apollo TV. “The combination of expert guidance from the Insys team together with the flexibility and ease-of-use of InsysGo enabled us to quickly launch a service to multiple platforms.”

The platform is currently available in Estonia with ambitions to expand to other Baltic countries. Users can access the service via web browsers, mobile devices with Android and iOS systems, Android TV, and Chromecast.
