UK based web TV provider Aggregator has launched RailTV.tv. It is the first global offering for the company. RailTV.tv offers rail enthusiasts a high quality, downloadable, on demand television service with immediate access to content that usually has to be bought on DVD on the high street or through mail order.
From launch Aggregator has secured content from leading railway content providers and intends to continue to grow its portfolio. Three major libraries have already been signed, in addition to numerous smaller video producers, with content that covers a range of genres such as steam, diesels, electric, archive, heritage, model and modern traction. This wealth of content will retain the interest of all railway enthusiasts. Moreover, as Aggregator’s first global offering, RailTV.tv gives customers anywhere across the globe access to the service.
According to Martin Goswami Aggregator’s co-founder and CEO: “We have done a lot of research into this product offering and are aware of the huge potential of serving this global community. What’s also exciting is that the business models established here and the global platform we have created will provide the foundations for the efficient roll-out of a whole number of future services.”
The RailTV.tv platform is a paid service. Costs are highly flexible and are based on the model set by Aggregator’s first product offering Moë.tv, a web TV Russian language portal that provides a broad range of TV content to over half a million Russians living in the UK. Like Moë.tv, RailTV.tv has no mandatory subscription charges, meaning consumers can obtain content on a pay-per-view basis of £1.40 to £2.80 per programme. A subscription service is also soon to be launched in which unlimited content can be downloaded for one set monthly fee. The full catalogue is available to view at www.railtv.tv.
