CommScope Holding Company, Inc. COMM has partnered with Orange Belgium to provide its subscribers with set tops powered by the Android TV operating system that offers live television and streaming services.

Orange Belgium is a leading telecommunication operator in the Belgian market, with more than 3 million customers. It provides connectivity services to residential and business customers through multigigabit mobile, cable and fiber-optic networks.

Orange Belgium is the second affiliate CommScope has provided with Android TV devices. The first being Orange Slovensko in August 2021.

CommScope provides solutions to simplify and accelerate the deployment of Android-based TV services. It integrates high-quality set-top hardware with the latest version of Android TV Operator Tier, additional software components and a customized user interface.

The latest set top is the result of the integration of Orange ecosystem partners with CommScope’s software. It will provide Orange Belgium subscribers with a connected 4K UHD digital video decoder providing OTT streaming services and broadcast TV services.

Subscribers will have access to a variety of premium streaming apps and a new multiscreen cloud recording service. With a microphone built into the remote control, they can talk to Google to search for movies and shows.

CommScope removed all single-use plastics in the packaging, which aligns with both CommScope and Orange Belgium’s commitment to reducing environmental impact. CommScope and Orange plan to launch similar platforms to more affiliates in 2022.

CommScope is likely to benefit from industry tailwinds such as 5G and mobile network densification, indoor coverage and expansion of optical fiber networks.

The stock has lost 58.2% in the past year compared with the industry’s decline of 53.5%.
