Netgem, the end-to-end video entertainment provider, has secured a total of 29 additional content partnerships throughout 2015, bringing the total number of partners to more than 50. The agreements, signed for the UK and European markets, have enabled Netgem to provision an unparalleled level of free and pay-as-you-go entertainment content to the fast growing customer base of Netgem’s Telco operator clients across movies, series, international channels, children’s, and thematic content – providing over 400 channels and thousands of On-Demand video assets.
In order to expand further its offering to telecoms operators, Netgem has signed partnerships with some of the best known content providers, including MUBI, Netflix, Youtube, Wuaki.TV, and Sky’s Now TV. One of Netgem’s most recent partnerships has been with online TV streaming solution Simplestream to provide the company’s TV Player Plus service that offers customers in the UK a wide range of TV and films across free and premium TV channels, including Eurosport, National Geographic and Cartoon Network. Netgem has also signed an agreement with global media solutions provider Globecast to provide My Polish TV and Telefrance in the UK which launched on EE TV on November 26th.
“The Triple/Quad-Play telecoms market is an incredibly competitive space, with a range of service providers competing hard to maintain revenue streams and gain new customers” said Sylvain Thevenot, Managing Director of Netgem TV PVX. “By signing agreements with leading content providers on our #TelcoTV platform, we are enabling telcos to save both in terms of cost and time-to-market as they deploy engaging TV services to their customers. Operators can then focus on delivering the best customer experience, rather than having to deal with the challenges of securing and maintaining content services and building out content management infrastructure.”
