Voice TV management is becoming more and more …



These days, it’s been exactly three years since Telekom Slovenije introduced a novelty in Slovenian homes – managing TV content with Slovenian audio. During this time, managing audio content, which TV viewers can also search by content, actor name, TV show name, show, series or movie title, has become very popular, with more than 130,000 users using the NEO platform. Experience shows that three-quarters of TV viewers use voice control every day, make more than 200,000 different orders per month, and a third watch TV content “back to back”. On average, a user watches 6.6 hours of video content per day.

Telekom Slovenije is constantly upgrading the NEO platform, and in the first 10 months of this year, the number of its users has increased by a third.

Using voice commands, users often search for animation

NEO users often look for animations with voice commands. However, more than half of all audio inquiries are about program changes (program’s spoken name), and a good third are specific inquiries about content, i.e. search for movies, series, actors, video stores, apps, and the like. The rest is represented by these technical commands, with which users register the view, change the profile, change the volume, manage the smart home or indicate a specific serial number for the location of the program. Last year, the use of voice inquiries increased by up to 65 percent and in October and November this year it already exceeded 10 million in one month.

Cloud play is only available on NEO

In addition to managing content and devices in the smart home, NEO has also been able to play games in the cloud since February of this year. In doing so, Telekom Slovenije has connected with the world’s leading provider of cloud gaming, Gamestream, by offering subscribers the opportunity to play leading-edge games. The top 3 popular games at the moment are Aqua Moto Racing Utopia, WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship and MotoGP™ 17. A total of 104 advanced games of various genres are available, which users only need a gamepad to play.

280 TV shows, 52 radio stations, 1426 movies and series, 14 program options

In addition to a large selection of TV and radio content, NEO also offers over 30,000 different content in programming options such as DKino, HBO, Minimax+, DaVinci and Pickbox Now, through which NEO users can also access content on YouTube. At the same time, NEO cares about the safe entertainment of children, as selected content is available in the children’s park, and parents can only allow the child to view content that is appropriate for the child’s age.
