JungoTV needed a technology partner with a nimble business model that allows us to monetize in the way we want and gets us up and running quickly. Globecast was the obvious choice for this project and we’re excited to be partnering with them.”
Natalie Rouse, vice president of content acquisition, aggregation and distribution (CAAD) at Globecast, said: “This is Globecast’s first CAAD launch in Indonesia, which is a strong and growing market for us as well as for Telkom Indonesia, who wants to expand its video business with OONA. This partnership is a great example of our ability to enter new markets with top-tier content that directly addresses the needs of our customers, especially one as prominent as JungoTV. We work diligently to make sure that content only has to be given to us once so that we can deliver it to any platform in any location — in a way that’s perfectly suited to our customers’ requirements.”
