Orange TV-box is changing, but does not yet include all streaming apps

Orange launched its new TV-box this month, a compact decoder operating with the Android operating system. It gives you access to several streaming apps, but unfortunately not all, nor the most popular.

As we watch television less and less and use streaming apps, operators are increasingly incorporating these software on their digital TV platforms, via their decoder. Orange also now incorporates streaming apps in its latest decoder.


Among the free TV-box streaming apps, we find RTBF AUVIO, RTL PLAY, VRT.Naked and VTM.Go. Since the end of last year, these apps have also been available at Proximus and Telenet. Regarding paid streaming applications, Orange opted for Amazon Prime Video and Streamz. Compared to the two greatest streaming services (Netflix and Disney+), both have a rather limited audience. As a comparison, Proximus offers Disney+ and Netflix on its most recent decoder. Telenet offers, among other things, Netflix and Streamz.

Orange could have been the first operator on the market with a TV-box that integrates all streaming apps. A missed opportunity because consumers would take advantage of a single device that gives them access to all the services available on the market.

A clear and much faster menu

Compared to the previous orange decoder, there are a lot of differences. First of all, the size of the decoder. The new TV-box is almost four times smaller than the previous version. The new remote control is better in hand and all the buttons are sufficiently large and clear.

The main menu is clear, navigation in the menu is very fluid and much faster than with the previous orange decoder.

First, only for new customers

As the global shortage of spare parts still affects the stock of orange decoders, the new case is currently only available for new Orange TV customers.

However, customers can choose themselves to go to the new decoder. They then pay a single cost of € 49, due to access to this new technology and a richer offer. Too bad for the wallet but, in the past, we have seen similar supplier change costs for other operators. To compensate, current Orange TV customers will benefit from 3 months of free access to Streamz and Orange Football.
