Netgem, the acclaimed end-to-end video entertainment provider and global leader in #TelcoTV, today announced it has secured a total of 29 additional content partnerships throughout 2015, bringing the total number of partners to more than 50. The agreements, signed for the UK and European markets, have enabled Netgem to provision an unparalleled level of free and pay-as-you-go entertainment content to the fast growing customer base of Netgem’s Telco operator clients across movies, series, international channels, children’s, and thematic content – providing over 400 channels and thousands of On-Demand video assets.
In order to further expand its offering to telecoms operators, Netgem has signed partnerships with some of the best known content providers, including MUBI, Netflix, Youtube, Wuaki.TV, and Sky’s Now TV. By securing these partnerships Netgem has ensured that operators are able to deliver a compelling TV and entertainment service offering to their customers that gives them a distinct advantage over their competitors – including a number of traditional Pay-TV providers.
One of Netgem’s most recent partnerships has been with online TV streaming solution Simplestream to provide the company’s TV Player Plus service that offers customers in the UK a wide range of TV and films across free and premium TV channels, including Eurosport, National Geographic and Cartoon Network. Netgem has also signed an agreement with global media solutions provider Globecast to provide My Polish TV and Telefrance in the UK which launched on EE TV on 26th November.
“The Triple/Quad-Play telecoms market is an incredibly competitive space, with a range of service providers competing hard to maintain revenue streams and gain new customers” said Sylvain Thevenot, Managing Director of Netgem TV PVX. “By signing agreements with leading content providers on our #TelcoTV platform, we are enabling telcos to save both in terms of cost and time-to-market as they deploy engaging TV services to their customers. Operators can then focus on delivering the best customer experience, rather than having to deal with the challenges of securing and maintaining content services and building out content management infrastructure.”
A key enabler of Netgem’s success in securing these partnerships is the acclaimed #TelcoTV platform, a service that integrates Broadcast TV with IPTV and HTML 5-based OTT content to enable telecoms service providers to deliver a complete experience to their customers across TV and mobile devices.
Efe Cakarel, Founder and CEO of MUBI and one of Netgem’s content partners, said: “We are really excited to have launched MUBI on EE TV through Netgem this autumn. The partnership has gotten off to a great start, and continues to show tremendous momentum in our growth by expanding our reach to a much wider audience. We look forward bringing Netgem’s customers the best films from around the world throughout 2016.”
Netgem is continuing its drive to provision new channels, with Al Jazeera and SPI FilmBox due to be launched on the #TelcoTV platform in the near future.
