OH TV and ECS launch African TV platform
July 9, 2012
Broadcaster OH TV and broadcast services provider European Communication Services (ECS) have jointly launched a broadcast platform for Africa and IPTV platform for Europe.
Africa-based broadcasters and Africa-centric content channel operators can use a satellite located over Africa, downlink facilities in the UK and access to the OH BoX IPTV platform to extend their distribution over Africa and Europe.
“Our advanced service offers local and regional broadcasters in Africa a new opportunity for covering all Africa and growing internationally. We can bring them to various cable headends around the continent, UK, Europe and US. Working closely with OHBoX’s IPTV Platform, the channels will be available on laptops, tablets, smartphones and computers around the world,” said ECS CEO Eran Avni. “The keys to our turn-key solution are the top edge technologies we use to compress and distribute content that enable our partnership to bring excellent pricing to the market. This is the ECS edge.”
London-based OH TV describes itself as an international TV network providing contemporary entertainment, which reflects the black experience worldwide. ECS provides distribution and broadcasting services for video, audio and data, covering Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, North and South America and Australia.
