BBC Studios (BBCS) has selected Media Choice to contribute and distribute their premium channels, like the popular channel BBC First, exclusively in the Benelux towards all TV operators in the Netherlands and Belgium.
We will pick up these (premium) channels in cooperation with and from BCCS’s other partner SES from their London and Munich facility to distribute these channels to the TV operators, using our proven and reliable Private Broadcast (Fibre) Network and Media Platforms.
We already have presence in several European most relevant POP’s, which are connected via the highest quality fibre connections, fully redundant, to contribute and distribute these premium (live) signals.
To offer and complete the contribution and distribution services, we invested in different locations (GEO-redundant) to downlink signals from their Satellite facilities lately. Of course, the contribution and distribution services could also be delivered with full OTT secured and reliable transport methods. This way we can offer a complete high-end contribution and distribution service to our customers.
As a company that already is being known offering playout services, like ad-/program insertion, (cloud based and/or traditional lineair) playout and non-broadcast/OTT media services, we have grown rapidly on our contribution and distribution services across Europe the last couple of years.
Therefore, we are proud to add BCCS as a very well-respected media organization.
BBCS agreed on a multi-year long term collaboration with us and is an extension of an already existing agreement.
