The rebrand comes as the company embarks on plans for expansion outside its current markets, including in further major countries within Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Africa, and North America.
wedotv is available on streaming devices including Roku, Apple TV, Samsung Smart devices and Amazon Fire TV; smart phone platforms including Android and iOS; pay TV enablers including Netgem TV and Metrological; and directly on the web.
Movie offering wedomovies is also offered as a FAST channel on Samsung TV Plus, LG Channels, Rakuten TV, Philips, TCL, rlaxx TV, waipu.tv, Netgem, Zesan and Xiaomi.
The name change announcement was made by Video Solutions CEO Philipp Rotermund and chairman Chris Sharp.
“Four years ago, we launched Watch4 with the expectation that AVOD would see a growth boon in the years to come. Of course, that assumption turned out to be somewhat of an understatement! Recent reports have projected that worldwide AVOD revenues will hit US$260B by 2025. In jointly naming our two already successful AVOD services as wedotv, we will capitalize on our own substantial growth in this space as well as that of the industry as a whole,” said Rotermund.
“The unified brand enables us to drive the business forward in our current markets and future territories. This year has been significant as we are consistently receiving 30 million video starts a month. This can be attributed to our stronger-than-ever content lineup and our availability across more devices than ever before,” said Sharp.
