Vubiquity, a provider of premium content services, and tv2u Worldwide entered into a deal to work together to roll-out transactional video-on-demand (TVOD) services to some of the most under-penetrated markets in Asia and the Middle East.
As part of the deal, tv2u will act as Vubiquity’s affiliate in up to seven high-growth markets, including Indonesia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait. Vubiquity will provide the international programming to these new TVOD services, as well as content processing and ongoing promotional support for the content.
tv2u will provide a TVOD platform, including a platform with single login access, to its video-distributor clients in Indonesia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Australia and UK. Further countries may be added to the agreement at a later date.
tv2u’s clients including telecommunications customers, Government organisations, and large media entities can offer their customers access to premium movies from the major Hollywood studios, as well as dramas, comedies and kids content from premier US and European TV networks. These new services will enable end-users to stream premium content to any device, including their smartphones, tablets, PCs, smart TVs and set-top boxes.
