Piksel, a global player in building online video businesses, has announced its partnership with Jazz & Blues TV to launch what it claims is the first digital music TV channel dedicated to jazz and blues in the world.
The channel, which launches in Q1 2016, will bring premium live and VoD music concerts, interviews and performances to thousands of jazz and blues enthusiasts around the world.
Vince Williams, CEO, Jazz & Blues TV commented: “The launch of Jazz and Blues TV will share the experience of live music with people all around the world and it’s with Piksel’s support that we have been able to make this ambition a reality. What made the partnership with Piksel a good fit was its strategic approach – taking the time to understand our online video business and setting a framework for what success looked like using internet TV business modelling. Through this process Piksel showed it is as focused as we are on a path to profitability. Of course the technology needed to be right too. We wanted a solution that was easy to use and that would highlight the talent of our artists. This and more is possible with Piksel Hive. When you combine the technology and the business model expertise with Piksel’s heritage in delivering high-quality live and VoD experiences, it’s easy to see why Piksel was the clear choice for the launch of Jazz and Blues TV.”
