Hong Kong free-to-air broadcaster TVB is to launch an over-the-top (OTT) video platform in Thailand in partnership with MVTV.

The companies plan to create a Thai version of the digital video platform TVB Anywhere, according to a report in Variety.

The platform will reportedly offer TVB content dubbed into Thai, as well as delivering 100 local channels when it launches in the second quarter of 2018. The OTT platform would then enter other markets in Southeast Asia such as Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, TVB Internationalís general manager Desmond Chan told the publication.

TVB Anywhere claims to have more than 100,000 subscribers, helped by its recent expansion to Macau in conjunction with telco CTM. The TVB Anywhere app is also to be preinstalled on tablets manufactured by Alco Electronics, which will be available later this year.
