OwnZones Media Network, a provider of VOD services for multiple platforms, is in position to extend a video bridge to MVPD set-top boxes and expand its international reach following a partnership with Metrological, a TV apps company with ties into operators such as Liberty Global and Comcast.
Under the agreement, OwnZones is a “preferred” provider for Metrological’s Application Platform, which brings apps and OTT content to operator devices and touts a footprint reach of more than 40 million homes and agreements with other providers that include KPN (the Netherlands), Tele Columbus (Germany) and Ooredoo (Qatar).
The additional focus on MVPDs expands OwnZones’s reach on platforms such as web browsers, Roku, Hulu, LeEco, and Amazon for a variety of SVOD services that include 10 Minute Meals with Aarti Sequeira ($1.99 per month), My Fight Gym ($4.99 per month), DOX: Top Documentaries ($2.99 per month), Warriors & Gangsters: Action Movies ($2.99 per month), and Horror Film Network ($2.99 per month).
Of recent note, OwnZones inked a deal to distribute The List from E.W. Scripps.
