Virgin Media has chosen Narrowstep to power its online video offering. The internet company is already responsible for the distribution of 150 Web-based channels including Go Beyond TV for Land Rover, London TV, RomeReports TV, and ITV Local.
Virgin is using Narrowstep’s TelvOS internet TV technology platform for the playout of five themed channels; Gaming, Knowledge, Movies, Sport and TV. The content is drawn from Virgin Media Television, the former Flextech, including Living TV, Bravo, Challenge and Trouble.
Narrowstep specialises in the delivery of long form video as opposed to the more established clip format.
