Scoop Network debuts in Europe
March 1, 2017
Scoop Network, a new entertainment channel has pre-launched on the TV service of telco Post Luxembourg.
The channel’s programme schedule consists of a mix of light entertainment with movie, music, fashion and celebrity news. The channel is produced, operated and distributed by the Dutch independent producer FCCE. Scoop Network is available as an international English feed (all specification incl. DVB compliant broadcast stream) but at the same time the channel can be easily localised with local hosts, native voice over, sub-titles or dubbing and even locally inserted programming. The channel also has a VoD and OTT offering.
The programme schedule is mainly based on the daily news items and fresh weekly programming produced by the FCCE HQ in Amsterdam. In addition, the Scoop Network team can draw from an extensive content library with over 3,000 video items, evergreen content and special productions from festivals, events and award shows.
“The flexibility in deal making, the OTT proposition and the option to localize the channel very easily and cost efficiently is a game changer,” said Justus Verkerk, CEO of FCCE. “Around the world, we meet cable and mobile operators that are looking for new options. We offer an affordable turnkey solution. FCCE can deliver the channel with, for example Spanish, Serbian or any other language sub-titles, a native host and even some locally produced programming. The channel can also promote an operator’s Movie VOD platform, as a white labeled solution or with the Scoop Network branding, or select the perfect audience for a brand/advertiser that is looking for an exclusive 24/7 communication tool.”
Scoop Network will soon be available on the Fascination TV platform in the US, Canada and the UK.
