Vubiquity adds white label functionality for eircom VOD
| 11 October 2014
The Republic of Ireland's largest telecoms operator, eircom, has tapped white-label storefront platform provider Vubiquity to power its new transactional video on-demand (TVOD) offering.
eVision On Demand is part of eircom's eVision TV service which was launched with more than 500 films in its catalogue, with plans to grow the service to more than 1000 movies within the next six months. The service allows its customers to rent blockbuster and independent films with control to pause, fast forward and to watch content on TVs, and on mobile devices via eircom's iOS and Android apps.
The eVision On Demand deployment is the first storefront launched by Vubiquity outside the UK since its acquisition of FilmFlex from Sony Pictures Television and The Walt Disney Company in May 2014 and says the company is representative of its commitment to international growth.
Vubiquity is supplying eircom with premium movie content for the new service alongside content processing, scheduling and service management. The service supports multi-device/multiscreen content delivery including digital and platform operation, all content management, editorial management, billing and customer service. The business works with all the major Hollywood studios, all the large independents and a wealth of boutique content providers, providing one of the largest ranges of new-release movie content in the territory.
"I'm delighted with the solution provided by Vubiquity," commented Jon Florsheim, eircom director of TV & Fixed, says: eircom is committed to continually developing, extending and investing in our offering to provide innovative, exciting services built on a robust platform and backed with high-quality customer service. Vubiquity shares these values. Since we launched eVision last October, we have consistently offered our customers new added benefits and the launch of the on demand service is the natural next step. eVision On Demand will allow our customers to watch the latest Hollywood releases at home, on any mobile device, while they're out and about or even on holidays through a wide range of devices or via their set-top box."
