Qwest TV joins Plex
June 30, 2021
Qwest TV is partnering with Plex, the free entertainment streaming service, to give millions of viewers around the world access to the musical vision of Qwest TV co-founder Quincy Jones.
With many partnerships in place around the world, Plex is the first device-agnostic way to access Qwest TV’s curated channels in the US.
“Plex is our latest step in bringing more world-changing and genre-defying music to more viewers,” Qwest TV CEO and Co-founder Reza Ackbaraly explains Ackbaraly. “By presenting this music in a new format to new audiences, we’re striving to tear down the barriers that separate different cultures and that limit our listening habits. Digital platforms are too often dictated by algorithms that create echo chambers with our own cultural background and previous experience. Partnering with an innovative company like Plex solidifies Qwest TV’s position as the global leader working to ensure openness, curiosity, and inclusivity in our artistic and cultural consumption.”
Qwest TV’s linear channels are now reaching more than 149+ million viewers. “When it comes to experiencing art, access is key,”Ackbaraly added. “Access to high-quality performances and ideas lies at the core of our mission; it’s what drove Quincy and me to found Qwest TV to begin with. Plex furthers this by bringing our content to viewers wherever they like to watch.”
