Online.nl deploys All-in-One proposition with Stream Group’s IPTV solution

Dutch ISP Online.nl selected Stream Group to develop a new service created to offer Live TV, Multiscreen, OTT and VOD services to online viewers on xDSL and FttH networks throughout the Netherlands. Online.nl has built a reputation over the years as an affordable internet and telephony provider. As Online.nl made the transition to on-demand delivery, it added highly-competitive, interactive services that enable customers to determine how, when and where they enjoy their entertainment.
