Dutch based KPN Global Carrier Services has teamed up with Narrowstep, a provider of TV over the Internet solutions, to provide a wholesale Internet TV offering to mobile and fixed network operators, ISPs and content parties.
“We have looked long and hard at this market before deciding to work with Narrowstep,” comments Gert-Jan Huizer, VP Portfolio Management within KPN Global Carrier Services in a prepared statement. “The combination of their leading edge technology, and our International IP Network and global customer base will enable us to offer the first comprehensive, end to end, wholesale Internet TV service on the market”
KPN will offer a bundled service to international wholesale customers that will enable them to monetize video content and decommoditize bandwidth sales. The new service will launch in October 2007, and as part of the deal, Narrowstep will use KPN’s global network infrastructure to extend its Content Distribution Network.
