With Popyoular, our users will be able to find and consume more content, and be more satisfied with their choices, leaving everyone happier at the end of the day says Fouad El-Idrissi, Product Manager Video/iTV at Ziggo

- Ziggo is the biggest triple-play provider in the Netherlands. To us, that means they have the user base and technology to show how the Popyoular platform can truly make an impact for consumer entertainment services.
