Picture this… you’re a publicly traded broadband company in the UK,

known for providing reliable service at a fair, fixed price. The services you offer — TV, mobile, and Internet — are the backbone of modern communications and entertainment. And you’re so well regarded in the industry you just won uSwitch’s Most Popular BroadbandProvider for 2019.

But it’s hard to keep up in an on-demand world.

Your customers expect more and more content on their terms, and you have to innovate quickly to meet their needs — and stay ahead of the competition. It’s especially true for TV, where viewing habits and the competitive landscape are constantly changing.

So, you turn to SOUTHWORKS.

We develop an ahead-of-its-time TV demo app that runs on mobile devices and set-top boxes. Instead of building out a new infrastructure from scratch — which would have been a long, tedious process — we leverage Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform, saving you huge amounts of time and money.

Now, the demo is your gold standard for TV-accompaniment apps.

The app includes a player to view live TV and on-demand content, a recommendation engine based on user preferences, and the ability to resume playback from a mobile device. There’s even an IoT integration that allows customers to adjust the room, perfect for movie-watching. And we completed everything — analysis, design and implementation — in just three weeks. That’s what happens when you Make Everything Right™.
