Voyo nears new landmark

CME’s subscription video on demand service Voyo had 90,000 subscribers in October and is now on track to reach 100,000.

Commenting on its recent success, Robert Berza, the head of the company’s New Media Division, said that it was down to a strong autumn season of local productions and an increase in the number of linear channels distributed across the CEE region.

He added: “you will hear more from us in the near future as Voyo is practically building the paid VOD markets of CEE.”

Voyo was launched in the Czech Republic in early 2011 and quickly rolled out in CME’s five other markets.

Initially a free on demand service in all but one of those markets (Slovenia), it adopted the SVOD later in the year.
