TRT World, Turkey’s first English broadcasting channel, is now available on Huawei Video which is a pre-installed streaming service included in digital devices of Huawei. TRT World’s linear content, at first instance, will be available to all Huawei digital device users in Turkey through Huawei Video platform.
As the latest launch in the growing portfolio of digital products, Huawei Video offers a unique opportunity to reach more than 20 countries and regions, covering Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, South Africa, and Latin America. Through this partnership, both companies aim at better serving global viewers who look for a reliable source of information.
Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Istanbul with three newsrooms located around the world, TRT World broadcasts in the English language to communicate a Turkish perspective on current affairs to a global audience. As the international face of Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) – a European Broadcasting Union (EBU)– founding member – TRT World hopes to encourage dialogue between viewers by offering a different viewpoint on current affairs.
Furkan Han, TRT World’s Head of Global Digital & Satellite Distribution & Partnership, said: ‘‘We are happy to announce our partnership with Huawei. TRT World will bring HUAWEI Video users a humanitarian point of view on global news affairs from all around the world.’’
James.Xu, Consumer Cloud Service Video Business Dept Director, added: “Huawei Video’s positioning is to deliver high-quality service to users based on full equipped infrastructure. We are cooperating with our partners to accurately provide quality video content to Huawei users, and we will keep working together for mutual development.”
