Media billionaire Mr. David was speaking as he unveiled his latest content-sharing deal, which will see the FilmOn.com platform deliver programming from the highly respected France 24 news channel of Paris. Under the new agreement, FilmOn.com users will be able to view France 24’s rolling package of news and current affairs on PCs and smartphones delivering multiple streams in several languages. The move further adds to FilmOn.com’s impressive stable of big news offerings from around the globe, which boasts content from BBC News, Associated Press, Russia Today, Al Jazeera and many others live casts and vod-casts.
Mr. David said: “We are delighted to welcome France 24 to the growing stable of national broadcasters who are choosing to make their content available via FilmOn.com.
“This deal follows similar agreements with TVE of Spain and Deutsche Welle of Germany and it leaves us poised in a strong position to achieve our goal of conquering multiple territories around the globe.
This is yet another killer blow that will leave rival services struggling to keep pace with our innovative approach of offering offering major broadcasters an opportunity to connect with audiences via the internet, whilst generating income through freemium online advertising and premium subscription packages.”
“We have over 500 branded live-channels and 45 000 Video On Demand titles to cater for all tastes, offering content as diverse as from Movies, News, Sports, Fashion, Kids, Science and Technology to Bikini TeeVee!”
FilmOn.com also operates a hugely successful affiliate scheme and white label service. Participants benefit every time a great new channel is added because partner sites around the globe are immediately updated with the new content.
Mr David’s annoucement comes ahead of the Mip Com TV market in Cannes, where FilmOn.com’s Senior Vice President of Programming, Gary Shoefield, will be negotiating further content-sharing deals.
Mr David added: “Gary Shoefield’s role is to start negotiations with as many channels as possible with a view to adding at least five major national broadcasters by the end of the year.”
FilmOn.com’s 500 channels are mainly licensed from private broadcasters, plus the platform has over 45,000 hours of video content, which is updated on a daily basis. In addition to the European deals with national broadcasters, FilmOn.com also has a content sharing agreement with ABC of Australia.
