YOU On Demand, a VoD service provider in China delivering Hollywood movies to mobile and TV screens, has signed a distribution and service agreement with Beijing Hiveview Technolgy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dr. Peng Telecom and Media Group. Dr. Peng Group is the largest independent broadband service provider in China with 8 million broadband homes across the country.
Under the partnership, YOU On Demand will launch its subscription VoD service on Dr. Peng’s Domy OTT box. The service will include 100 Hollywood movies available at a time and a 30 per cent monthly refresh rate, targeting almost 1 million Domy Box users by the end of 2014.
Domy Box users will be able to subscribe to YOU On Demand’s subscription service for a monthly fee of 20 RMB. A 6-month and 1-year service option will also be available.
Both companies have also agreed to further expand their cooperation in the mobile arena in order to provide customers with an enhanced multiscreen user experience when combined with OTT on TV screens.
