The digital entertainment provider Mondia Media plans to realize its On-Demand Video Platform for German viewers of multiple TV stations by the end of the year. With this new service, viewers of privately-owned channels will have the possibility to watch missed series and films online at a later date
Until now, the retrieval of missed programming, also known as ‘Catch up TV’, is only possible in Germany for viewers of the publicly-owned channels ARD and ZDF. Only a few days ago, RTL and ProSiebenSat.1 were blocked from offering this service to their customers on the grounds of competition laws. The name-giver of the so-called “German Hulu”, is the successful American platform ‘Hulu’, which is not available to online visitors with a German IP address. As a worldwide leader in content aggregation and producer of state of the art Audio and Video platforms, Mondia Media has decided to bring about this realization soon, so that all channels in Germany can offer viewers the possibility of watching missed programming.
Volker Glaeser, Chief Operating Officer at Mondia Media said:
”Portals with digital content worldwide are our core business, and so we will bring all our skill and knowledge in this area to develop this new product. We invite all channels – privately-owned as well as publicly-owned – to participate in this project.”
