Philippines OTT service Blink to use Tvinci

Philippines OTT platform Blink is to use Tvinci as its platform provider.

Tvinci’s OTT 2.0 platforom will deliver Blink, wich will distribute Hollywood blockbusters and TV series supplied by Deluxe OnDemand.

Launching in Q4, Blink’s service packages will allow for unlimited access to the latest major studio releases on a subscription or à la carte model. The service will initially roll out in the Philippines, and currently has a line-up of 500 movies, 2,000 hours of TV series and general entertainment channels from Hollywood studios. In addition, the service will have six live channels with full EPG support, and plans to launch more by the end of 2013.

The service will be deployed across PCs, Macs and iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Tvinci said its support of multiple currencies, business models, dubbing and subtitles will future-proof Blink and the service’s expansion across other territories in Asia.

“We have chosen to work with Tvinci and Deluxe OnDemand because of the confidence of the Hollywood studios in these partners and their track record in the digital media business,” said Ronan K Deguzman, chief operating officer of Omni and executive vice-president of Solar Entertainment, a major buyer of Hollywood content in South East Asia.

“We are delighted that our OTT 2.0 platform has been selected to power Blink – the most innovative TV service in the Philippines. Blink offers a personal and social TV service using our platform to manage content, users, devices, business rules and user experience. Blink is set to provide consumers in the Philippines with a transformed viewing experience,” said Ofer Shayo, CEO, Tvinci. “The quality of the content provided by Deluxe OnDemand is superb and their content services – ingestion, encoding, encryption and streaming – provide their customers with exceptionally high quality video. It is a pleasure to work with Deluxe OnDemand on Blink, and I believe that the Tvinci-Deluxe OnDemand partnership is a winning formula for any service provider.”
