Motorvision Group has launched its car and motorsports channel on six additional TV platforms in Europe, Africa and Asia. Thanks to newly signed deals, car enthusiasts in Sub-Saharan Africa, Maledives and Phillipines can now watch Motorvision TV for the first time ever, while Australian and Dutch viewers have even more options to get the channel.
In Africa Motorvision Group has reached a distribution agreement with Vubiquity, to deliver Motorvision TV as one of the launch channels on the new OTT platform Black. The service is owned by telecommunications company Cell-C.
Audiences in the Democratic Republic of the Congo can also subscribe to the Celebrite package on Bleusat in order to watch the Motorvision TV in French. Bleusat provides its TV offerings via CTT, giving it a unique position in the market.
By teaming up with Asian Cable Communications (ACCION), Motorvision TV can be watched in the Philippines for the very first time. The company connects Filipino audiences with the world by distributing international pay-TV channels through local cable and IPTV platforms in the Philippines. Thanks to the deal with ACCION, Motorvision TV is currently available on twelve local platforms. More services will join the list of Filipino distribution platforms on an ongoing basis.
In Maldives, Motorvision TV agreed a new distribution partnership with Dhiraagu, the leading telecommunications company in the country. The channel can be watched via Dhiraagu TV, which launched in 2015 as the first nationwide IPTV service in Maldives and the only TV service which is available on mobile & fixed broadband.
Building on their existing distribution agreement in Germany and France, Motorvision TV and Watch-it extend their partnership to Australia. The recently launched OTT service is developed by digital distribution company Alchimie and brings more than 25 international channels to Australian homes, many of which have not been available in the market before.
Motorvision TV also expands its reach in the Netherlands with its introduction on YoufoneTV, a recently launched OTT live television and VoD service by virtual network operator Youfone Nederland. Motorvision TV continues to be available on Knippr / T-Mobile in the Netherlands, too.
“The launch of Motorvision TV in these new markets underlines our commitment, to bring one of Europe’s largest catalogues of automotive content to people around the world. We’re really excited to be part of already established services like Bleusat and Dhiraagu and new OTT-services like Black by Cell C and YoufoneTV. More petrol heads than ever before can now watch their favourite car magazines and thrilling highlights from the world of motorsports whenever and wherever they want”, said Raimund Koehler, CEO of Motorvision Group.
With these newly agreed contracts, Motorvision TV can now be watched via traditional pay TV platforms as well as OTT- and on-demand platforms by more than 13 million subscribers in more than 99 countries around the world.
