Wave OTT Plus combines Hispasat’s OTT as-a-service video distribution platform with linear and video-on-demand content. The white-label OTT video distribution platform that the satellite operator launched last year is now joined by an offering of more than 50 international linear channels, series, movies and other content.

Wave OTT Plus, which is part of the Hispasat Wave Video service portfolio, will be initially available in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Hispasat said it will soon be offered in Brazil as well. In addition to the international content offering, Wave OTT Plus will incorporate relevant local channels of each country.

Hispasat said that pay TV operators and Internet service providers who want to complement their current offerings or add a new service to their portfolio will be able to offer their customers these OTT streaming services through customized applications with their own branding and on different devices.

According to Hispasat, Wave OTT Plus is customisable and supports advanced features and functionalities. As an end-to-end solution, the new service includes all technical, operational and content elements, it said.
