ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB) chipset provider, Dish TV India Limited, India’s largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) operator, and HANDAN, the leading supplier of multimedia and home entertainment devices in Korea, proudly announced that they have further extended their partnership by launching the latest hybrid solution, “Dish Box” to enrich TV experience for subscribers in India. The new set-top box developed by the partnership will be highly connected to enable OTT (over-the-top) viewing entertainment.

Dish TV India Limited, being the leader in DTH service and TV distribution in India, is expanding its OTT offerings by introducing Dish Connected Box to allow subscribers to enjoy both DVB TV broadcasting and OTT contents.

ALi Corp.’s secure value SoC (system on chip) was chosen due to its wide compliance with mainstream CAS (conditional access system) security features, ideal for DVB-S2 Pay TV applications. In this joint collaboration, the secure SoC was adopted as the core of the Dish Connected Box to integrate OTT Apps, developed by Handan. The integration of hardware, software and middleware will enable subscribers to view both OTT apps and DVB-broadcasted contents.
