Ziggo, the Netherlands’ biggest cable service provider, has tabbed Motorola’s on-demand platform to deliver its HD and SD VOD service.

The commercial launch of the service, which was in the former Casema network, was in the second quarter of this year and will be expanded across Ziggo’s network by year’s end.

The Motorola B-1 Video Server and Stream Commander management software give Ziggo's customers touch-button access to thousands of programs, such as movies, children's programs, documentaries and music clips, and support the planned rollout of HD content.

Motorola said its on-demand offerings have now been selected by European operators that pass more than eight million homes.
