VCK launches new Amino firmware!

At the end of September 2015, the Vereniging Campus Kabel launches super new firmware for the Amino Settopbox.

We enhanced the complete interface and we particularly looked at ease of operation and wanted to accomplish a faster user experience.

The firmware has been rebuilt completely from the ground up, by the VCK. We made the underlying code modular, which means we can easily add new features in the future. Think of particular on-demand services and other cool functionalities.

By deploying this update, watching TV on your television system without the use of your computer, has been made far more comfortable. You can still enjoy over 130 different television channels, of which 35 are in HD-quality!
