Netgem is adding Netflix to its Internet TV platform through Elisa TV in Finland and Totalplay in Mexico, initially reaching over 400,000 subscribers.

The Netgem TV service integrates broadcast TV with IPTV and HTML5 over-the-top (OTT) content, aiming to deliver a complete TV experience on big screens and mobile devices, inside and outside the home, and offering advanced capabilities such as network PVR, time-shift and catch-up.

Netgem, the leading provider of TelcoTV, delivers the service as a bespoke solution or offers a fully managed service to operators.

Totalplay, which independently announced the Netflix deal a few weeks ago, is a leading fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) operator in Mexico City and other large Mexican cities, while Elisa serves 2.3 million customers with telecom services across Finland.

"Netgem TV platform is trusted by all Hollywood studios and major OTT brands such as BBC, YouTube and Sky TV. Netflix is a major addition," said Joseph Haddad, CEO of Netgem. "This is in line with our strategy of becoming the video entertainment service provider of choice to fixed and mobile operators around the world. We are also the partner of content owners, extending their asset monetisation."
