Globecast deal takes Netgem content partnerships past 50

A deal with media services provider Globecast to provide expatriate-targeted services My Polish TV and Telefrance has taken French telco TV specialist Netgem’s content partnerships total for 2015 to 29, bringing the total number of partners the company has to over 50.

The Globecast deal saw the launch of My Polish TV and Telefrance in the UK on the Netgem-supplied EE TV platform on November 26.

Other Netgem partnership agreements include Mubi, Netflix, Youtube, Wuaki.TV, and Sky’s Now TV.

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.

“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.”
