LeEco and THEMA Singapore are proud to announce the launch of iConcerts, the first full HD online music channel in Hong Kong. The 100% live music channel and the multimedia platform have entered into an agreement for the distribution of the linear channel from June 2016. “We are extremely glad to launch iConcerts on LeECO and we hope to work closer again with LeECO to contribute to their success in the region”, said François Thiellet, CEO at THEMA.

Series of popular and classic western concerts will be scheduled to serve our music lovers without additional charge. All Le VIP members could further enjoy 14 days catch up replay on UI platform anytime and anywhere within the period.
“LeEco has always been committed to bringing the best entertainment content such as music, movies to our users, so we are excited to team up with THEMA Singapore to introduce this whole new channel. It’s absolutely a great news to all music lovers as they could enjoy tons of international live music 24 hours a day”, says Tin Mok, CEO for APAC at LeEco, “This co-operation not only enriches our content platform but also marks a remarkable milestone in enhancing users experience.”

We are thrilled with this new collaboration with LeEco and this partnership allows iConcerts to continue to expand its footprint in Hong Kong and Macau”.
iConcerts collects the most popular and classic American and European concerts. Fabulous music shows by pop stars like Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Robbie Williams will be available to all LeEco users soon.
Commenting on the acquisition, François Thiellet, CEO of THEMA, said: “The acquisition of Alterna’TV marks a new step in our partnership with Eutelsat with whom we have been working since our creation. It will allow us to scale up our presence in North and Latin America and will reinforce our team and the portfolio of channels we offer pay-TV operators in these markets. It will complement the platform we already operate in Canada with Terra Terra (that notably distributes Planète+ in Canada and became part of THEMA in January 2016) to create Thema America which aims to become a privileged partner of operators, replicating our success with our European model that draws on an innovative editorial and commercial approach.”
