North America on-demand IPTV service aimed at Asian Americans
Los Angeles-based GlobeVISION will launch an on-demand IPTV service for Asian Americans in North America.
According to company CEO and president Edward Bach, GlobeVISION PIE has inked deals for content with three media companies, including South Korea’s MBC and SBS. The company has also signed an agreement with CJ Media, South Korea’s largest cable media group. The deals will allow GlobeVISION to deliver tens of thousands of Korean and Chinese television shows and movies directly from Asia to the TV sets of subscribers in North America.
The service is available now on a trial basis in Southern California and will begin serving viewers across the United States and Canada July 1.
GlobeVISION's PIE Service is delivered through the subscriber's broadband Internet connection to a self-installed rented or purchased set top box that outputs directly to their television or home theater. Subscribers pay a monthly fee for on-demand access.
