Octoshape and Mobibase have teamed up to provide mobile publishers, IPTV providers and over-the-top (OTT) broadcasters with a consumer-focused content distribution service delivered to connected devices.
The global joint offering combines the Mobibase rich media library, which includes more than 200 themed channels and 15,000 on-demand videos, together with Octoshape's Infinite HD-M OTT distribution platform to offer programmers and OTT service providers increased content on a per subscriber, per channel basis.
With the integrated service, existing and new Octoshape customers will be able to subscribe to tailored, linear and on-demand content.

"We can now offer a modular and unique pricing model that includes content, asset management, set-top boxes and distribution across public networks for a fixed fee, per subscriber, per month."
