Proximus Pickx offers a highly diverse range of content, a vast programming library, with ground-breaking functionality, featuring live-TV, catchup, VOD, apps including Netflix, games via cloud and local content all available in one unified platform. Content discovery is further simplified for subscribers with the power of voice control, using Google Assistant.
Additionally, 3SS has helped Proximus transform its product development processes by introducing the principles of agile development, including SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) methodologies.
3SS’ award-winning 3READY front end and UI framework solution delivers an ultra-intuitive and adaptive UI that enables a captivating, unified experience across content sources and devices. 3READY is optimized for Android TV Operator Tier STB projects; it is highly flexible and pre-engineered to deliver today’s most compelling functional requirements. 3READY Android TV supports remote controls with and without numerical keypads.
