beIN extends Alpha Networks tech partnership

beIN Media Group has extended its OTT tech contract with software provider Alpha Networks.

The partnership will see Alpha Networks continue to develop, maintain and provide support for beIN’s OTT platform for the MENA for at least the next two years. 

Alpha Networks’ Tucano APIs are connected to a large number of front-end providers and payment gateways, allowing beIN’s OTT platform, beIN Connect, to now address several operators and satellite operators in the MENA region.  

Faisal Al Raisi, manager of Digital Projects at beIN, said: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing collaboration with Cognacq-Jay Image and Alpha Networks which was established seven years ago. We trust their technological expertise and value the quality of service they offer, especially during major events. This extension of our successful partnership allows our OTT platform, beIN Connect, to continue delivering our expanded digital content, including the latest and exclusive sports and entertainment programming to our subscribers across the region.” 

Guillaume Devezeaux, Alpha Networks CEO, said: “At Alpha Networks, we are extremely grateful for the trust beIN MEDIA GROUP has in our work and commitment. We are also very proud to see that our primary product, Tucano modular software, successfully supports one of the best solutions for sports distributions worldwide, counting millions of application downloads.”
