Talking about this landmark milestone, Tata Sky MD and CEO Harit Nagpal said, “The India-made set-top boxes will help generate employment while reducing lead time. The boxes have been tested and re-tested beyond the factory floor for quality assurance, and we hope this endeavor will help us to serve the Indian consumers even better.”

This project builds further on the long-standing partnership between Tata Sky and Technicolor Connected Home, the leading provider of set-top boxes and broadband access solutions for network service providers (NSPs) around the world.

“Today’s news marks the accomplishment of objectives outlined in August of 2020, in which Tata Sky and Technicolor Connected Home committed to shifting the production and distribution of STBs – including Android TV-based Binge+ set-top box – within India. This is another step in Technicolor Connected Home’s continuing investment in the growth of the important Indian market,” said Luis Martinez-Amago, President of Technicolor Connected Home.

The mass production of the set-top boxes developed for Tata Sky by Technicolor Connected Home started in Chennai, in partnership with Flextronics, in June 2021. Technicolor Connected Home is leveraging its best-in-class supply chain to enable Tata Sky to deliver an enhanced level of service and customer premises equipment for subscribers in the Indian market.

“The disruptions brought about by COVID-19 have illustrated the importance of having manufacturing and distribution operations that are as close to the subscriber base as possible. Technicolor Connected Home remains committed to working with Tata Sky -- and network service providers across the world -- to minimize risks and total cost of ownership of STB deployments,” concluded Luis Martinez-Amago, President of Technicolor Connected Home.
