TVPlayer, the UK-based video streaming service, has announced an exclusive three-year deal with Frequency, the cloud-based Internet video service that aggregates and distributes video from thousands of the world’s top digital providers.
Frequency will deliver a broad range of programming from top digital brands, major multi-channel networks and leading social influencers including Studio 71, Newsy, Jukin and Machinima. The initial line-up will include at least 10 linear channels and will be introduced in February to TVPlayer’s platform. More than 150 on demand channels will be integrated with TVPlayer in late March.
Since being founded in 2012, TVPlayer can now boast over 1 million active users in the UK and already offers over 100 broadcast channels on its platform, including 30 pay channels for £5.99 per month.
Rob Hodgkinson, Chief Operating Officer of TVPlayer, said: “Keen to establish TVPlayer as the launch platform for lean-back video experiences, we wanted to instigate a comprehensive digital-first programming strategy alongside our premium broadcast offering, and with Frequency, we’re able to do that with one deal and with one simple integration.”
Ian Aaron, President of Frequency, added: “TVPlayer’s unique OTT platform and rapid growth in the UK makes them an exciting and strategic partner for Frequency. Our expansive catalogue of top digital-first content, delivered in linear and on-demand formats, will enhance TVPlayer’s already compelling programming line-up.”
