With Brightcove, we are able to take our service further across the region, supported by a robust and scalable video platform. We are also able to cater to audiences who want to pay a premium for original French content and explore a new revenue stream for TV5MONDE. We selected Brightcove based on its leadership and experience in helping media companies launch successful OTT services globally, and we are excited to continue to work with Brightcove as we expand our service with video-on-demand and catch-up television services for subscribers.”
