ODG and Inview launch VOD on connected TVs

On Demand Group, the global VOD aggregator and subsidiary of SeaChange, and Inview Technology (Inview), have announced an agreement to launch both transactional VOD and subscription VOD services on millions of connected TV sets in major European countries, starting in Italy in the second quarter of this year.

Inview’s NEELiX platform is incorporated in millions of TV sets and includes a fully integrated electronic programme guide (EPG), media browser and personal scheduling tool, offering a video streaming capability that allows for on demand TV services as well as other added value consumer applications.

On Demand Group VOD services offered on the NEELiX platform will provide viewers with access to blockbuster movies available on a TVOD basis, and a library of on demand TV content available on an SVOD basis including popular TV series, children’s programming, classic movies, and the latest music videos. Consumers will also have the enjoyment of watching content on-demand with full control to pause, rewind, fast forward or watch over.
