Proximus has moved into the Android Operator Tier enabling new innovative features that create personalized experiences for Proximus subscribers,” said Thierry Demoor, Head of Digital Products & Solution Platforms, Proximus.
The receiver combines with the 3SS 3READY Android TV solution based on Android TV Operator Tier.

Search and navigation functions are available thanks to Google voice search and subscribers can view content in HDR 4K and access their recordings at any time via cloud storage. The solution also addresses the long-term sustainability objectives of Proximus, as the Pickx decoder operates on low power consumption levels.
