Fox launching Asian OTT service
April 24, 2015
Fox International Channels (FIC) revealed at the Asia Pacific Operators’ Summit that its key brands Fox, Fox Sports and National Geographic Channel will be made available via OTT in partnership with leading Asian platforms, including Avex in Japan, Tencent in China, Astro in Malaysia and Cignal in the Philippines. These services range from SVoD, linear streaming to catch-up, and will offer FIC’s content across all genres.
Zubin Gandevia, President of Fox International Channels Asia Pacific and the Middle East, commented “We are excited to be partnering with Avex, Tencent, Astro and Cignal. It is our mission to work with our platform partners to grow their subscriber base. The online, on-demand opportunity is the new frontier and we hope our innovative new products will help our partners tap into a new segment of consumers who do not have pay TV today.”
He continues, “FIC is proud to have Fox, Fox Sports and National Geographic Channel, three of the world’s biggest entertainment brands that have helped make pay-TV a household name. That makes FIC well positioned to help our partners bring in new audiences to their OTT services, and we look forward to doing so.”
