Kabel BW prepares for introduction of VoD

16 Nov 2009

London-based On Demand Group has announced that its joint venture with Tele Munchen Gruppe, On Demand Deutschland, will provide video-on-demand (VoD) content and services to German regional cable company Kabel BW. Under the agreement, Kabel BW will be able to make films and television series available to its subscribers as part of a new VoD service set for launch in early 2010. ‘On Demand Deutschland was formed to jumpstart the introduction of VoD and pay-per-view television in German-speaking regions and our agreement with Kabel BW means we are now working with Germany’s three largest cable operators,’ said Tony Kelly, CEO of On Demand Group. Kabel BW will deploy the vendor’s VoD platform using back-office software from eventIS, providing the cableco with a flexible software infrastructure that can easily scale to support the expansion of its VoD service. Both eventIS and On Demand Group are subsidiaries of VoD, IPTV and advertising software and systems supplier SeaChange International.
