TVT_logoUK-based media services company TVT is expanding with the launch of full access services business unit and a new office in Los Angeles.

TVT said that the launch of its access services unit will allow the company to build up the access and localisation services it already provides to the BBC, Netflix and others.

The company has also brought on former Ericsson, RedBee Media and BBC executive, David Padmore, as an international adviser to help with the launch of the new division.
