ODMedia is the first organisation in the Benelux to become an official worldwide technical partner of Google Play. This allows the Utrecht-based VOD-company to deliver content worldwide directly to this platform. Sjef Pijnenburg, CEO of ODMedia, about the new collaboration with Google Play: ‘‘we are extremely pleased with this development because we are now directly linked to all the major OTT platforms. We already had a direct connection with Netflix, Xbox and Amazon and are able to deliver to iTunes, but this addition completes our offer towards content providers’’.
In addition to the link with OTT platforms, ODMedia is integrated with all major cable operators and IPTV providers. The partnership with Google Play will allow an extension of the unique one-stop-shop service that ODMedia has to offer.
ODMedia’s daughter company Expoza has also had a partnership with Google since 2013 for the popular video platform YouTube. In addition to the technical supply and the uploading of titles within the TVOD environment (Google Play Store) of YouTube by ODMedia, Expoza provides copyright management and development of a complete YouTube strategy.
