Why Manufacturers Won't Pass Up the Opportunity to Use TikiLIVE’s IPTV SoftwareWith IPTV becoming more popular than ever, manufacturers are producing digital set top boxes at record speeds. However, the problem from a manufacturer’s perspective is that a company has to both develop top-of-the-line hardware and also create software that their user base can easily use. While some large companies may be able to accomplish this, not all manufacturers are ready and willing to take on the development of hardware and software.

For those companies that choose to focus on the hardware side of the set top box (STB) market, they need to partner with a company offering IPTV software that is compatible across a myriad of set top box devices.

The good news is that we’ve been at the forefront of the IPTV revolution for the past decade. We’ve long supported a variety of STBs — but have recently focused on improving our IPTV software and making it available to a wide variety of manufacturers.

This allows our manufacturing partners to focus on producing the highest quality set top boxes possible while we can focus on continuous improvements to our IPTV solution. Working together, we’re able to get our IPTV software in front of more “eyes” and set top box manufacturers are able to get more devices to market without any delays from issues developing software in-house.

TikiLIVE’s IPTV Software is Free to Manufacturers

Yes, you read that correctly! TikiLIVE’s IPTV software is absolutely free to STB manufacturers. Talk about a match made in heaven! To do so, set top box manufacturers simply build their devices like they’ve always done and then easily load TikiLIVE’s Android APK — which can then power their set top boxes with ease. A large number of manufacturers are already shipping their set top boxes preloaded with TikiLIVE software, including:

  • Jabil
  • Gemcolor
  • Geniatech
  • Jiangsu Yinhe Electronics Co., Ltd.

Top Features of TikiLIVE’s IPTV Software

Some of the features that set top box manufacturers seem to be most excited about include:

  • Support for a Variety of Devices – One of the main benefits of TikiLIVE’s IPTV software is that it can be used on a variety of set top boxes.

This multi-device support allows manufacturers to offer a variety of set top boxes and media dongles, all powered by the same TikiLIVE IPTV interface.
  • Fast Electronic Program Guide (EPG) – Another feature that both set top box manufacturers and their customers will love is our updated electronic program guide. This guide is extremely fast and does away with all of the frustration most cable and satellite customers deal with, caused by a slow program guide. Our IPTV software users do not have to worry about that! Manufacturers who choose to use TikiLIVE’s IPTV software can harness the power of our EPG to organize content for their users. Our EPG is also fully HTML5 compliant, which means channel managers, can update their content listings from all types of devices including mobile phone and tablets.

This allows manufacturers to earn additional passive income simply by including some pre-made content from TikiLIVE.
