TV5MONDE - a global television network which broadcasts French language programmes - has leveraged Brightcove Video Cloud to power its Over-The-Top (OTT) video services, TV5MONDE+ Asie and TV5Monde+ Pacifique.
TV5MONDE delivers live and on-demand content in 42 countries with over 75 million in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The television network will stream up to four live channels on desktop, iOS, and Android devices through Brightcove Video Cloud.
OTT subscribers can use their mobile devices as television remote controls to launch TV5MONDE's video services.
"Television as we know it today is about delivering content beyond the linear experience. With Brightcove, we are able to take our service further across the region, supported by a robust and scalable video platform," said Alexandre Muller, Managing Director of TV5MONDE in APAC.
He added: "We are also able to cater to audiences who want to pay a premium for original French content and explore a new revenue stream for TV5MONDE. We selected Brightcove based on its leadership and experience in helping media companies launch successful OTT services globally, and we are excited to continue to work with Brightcove as we expand our service with video-on-demand and catch-up television services for subscribers."
