TVT, the independent media services and post-production house, has announced a deal to provide BBC World News VoD content to Hulu Japan, a popular VoD service offering users more than 13,000 assets available on more than 90 million devices.

Providing a complete media management service, TVT is currently responsible for subtitling and dubbing documentary and current affairs programmes as well as providing a closed caption service for hard of hearing viewers.
TVT will be starting its work as VoD provider for Hulu Japan with the fast turnaround of local content. TVT will be responsible for re-packaging and translating content and captioning into both English and Japanese, as well as managing all the related metadata for some of BBC World News’ programme strands including Hardtalk, The Travel Show, Click, and Our World.
