Telia, Samsung get Smart, think outside the box

31 Aug 2012

TeliaSonera has partnered technology provider Samsung to launch a connected TV solution to replace IPTV set-top boxes in its Baltic and Scandinavian markets. Estonian subsidiary Elion will be the first to offer the new Smart TV solution to its subscribers before the end of this year, followed by Telia Sweden in Q1 2013 and Finland’s Sonera later that year. Once connected to the internet, the Smart TV will display the subscriber’s IPTV interface and configure settings automatically.
