About KNIPPR

KNIPPR is T-Mobile’s OTT service in The Netherlands. It’s the first online TV service available on the Smart TV.

KNIPPR is an online TV service with which users can compile their channel offer theirselves. As a result users are able to watch TV via an online stream and no longer need a decoder or coaxial cable.

We created the KNIPPR smart TV apps with our HTML based front-end solution OTT White Label. Our offer for partners that need a beautiful design interface suitable for all kinds of smart TV platforms.

Streaming Video’s to Smart TV

KNIPPR went live as a web service and was looking for a partner to expand its service to smart tv devices. The goal was to start with Samsung Tizen smart tv’s and quickly expand to AndroidTV. Since KNIPPR wanted to launch its TV apps within a short time frame, we decided to use our HTML based frontend framework, which makes it possible to built TV apps once and launch them quickly on all kinds of smart tv devices and platforms.

Smart TV player and DRM

For the smart TV apps we used our own unique player. It has all important play-back features, like; smooth seeking, pause, stop and favourites. Also our player is designed to support all kinds of streaming and DRM type combinations. Especially relevant for smart TV platforms is the mix of Microsoft SmoothStreaming with PlayReady DRM.

Simple navigation

For every design interface, our starting point is always that navigation must simple and smart. This is especially relevant for smart tv apps. Consumers that are using an “old fashioned” remote control, should always be able to go to any page by using only the cross navigation buttons and OK button. For the KNIPPR smart tv app, we created a friendly way users can navigate through the menu. As a result users can find quickly their favourite videos.
