September 30, 2013 10.15 Europe/London By Robert Briel
Internet TV platform FilmOn has signed a distribution agreement with French interantional news broadcaster France 24.
The deal follows a similar arrangement with Deutsche Welle and Spain’s TVE. Under the new agreement, FilmOn.com users will be able to view France 24’s rolling package of news and current affairs on PCs and smartphones.
FilmOn.com boasts content from BBC News, Associated Press, Russia Today, Al Jazeera and many other live casts and vodcasts.
The company’s CEO Alki David said in a statement: “This is yet another killer blow that will leave rival services struggling to keep pace with our innovative approach of offering major broadcasters an opportunity to connect with audiences via the internet, whilst generating income through freemium online advertising and premium subscription packages.
“We have over 500 branded live-channels and 45 000 Video On Demand titles to cater for all tastes, offering content as diverse as from Movies, News, Sports, Fashion, Kids, Science and Technology to Bikini TeeVee!”
