The Republic of Ireland’s largest telco, eircom, recently announced the launch of a new Transactional Video on Demand (TVoD) offering powered by Vubiquity’s white-label storefront platform.
US-based Vubiquity, the largest global provider of multi-platform services, is supplying premium movie content for the new service alongside content processing, scheduling and service management. eircom’s eVision On Demand service is the first storefront launched by Vubiquity outside the UK since its acquisition of FilmFlex from Sony Pictures Television and The Walt Disney Company Limited in May this year.
eVision On Demand is part of eircom’s successful eVision TV service and is launched with more than 500 films in its catalogue, with plans to grow the service to more than 1000 movies within the next six months. The service allows its customers to rent the latest blockbuster movies and independent films with complete control to pause, fast forward and to watch movies over again on their TVs, and on mobile devices via eircom’s iOS and Android apps. The latest releases cost from €3.99 to rent with library titles from €1.99.
Jon Florsheim, eircom Director of TV & Fixed, says: “I’m delighted with the solution provided by Vubiquity. eircom is committed to continually developing, extending and investing in our offering to provide innovative, exciting services built on a robust platform and backed with high-quality customer service. Vubiquity shares these values. Since we launched eVision last October, we have consistently offered our customers new added benefits and the launch of the on demand service is the natural next step. eVision On Demand will allow our customers to watch the latest Hollywood releases at home, on any mobile device, while they’re out and about or even on holidays through a wide range of devices or via their set-top box.”
