Technicolor Renews Tata Sky Contract

Technicolor has announced its award of two extension contracts from Tata Sky, India’s leading satellite operator with over 8m subscribers.
The news follows a long standing relationship between the two companies and the commercial success of Tata Sky's high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) digital TV offerings.
The contracts for the HD-enabled zapper and the SD satellite zapper have now been extended until mid 2015.
Michel Rahier, President of Technicolor’s Connected Home division, said: "We are very proud to support the commercial success of Tata Sky in its digital television services. As a long standing partner of Tata Sky, the renewal of the previous contracts awarded up to two years ago proves us that we have been able to build a strong relationship thanks to the high quality of our products." 
"Technicolor’s solutions have met our expectations in terms of reliability because we want to guarantee a trouble free experience for our customers. They also help meet our Total Cost of Ownership requirement, which is key for an operator with a large subscriber base like ours. The latest agreements mark the continuation of our trusted relationship with Technicolor," added Harit Nagpal, Managing Director & CEO of Tata Sky.
Deliveries of these set-top boxes are scheduled from 3Q 2013 to 2Q 2015, while Technicolor will continue providing locally-based after-sales support to Tata Sky.
