OpenTV has become the latest technology company to open an office in India. The new Mumbai office follows the recent appointment of Kishore Shirekar as country manager for India and Regional Sales Director for South Asia and the Middle East.
“We are very excited about strengthening our presence in the Indian market at a time when the market is growing and expanding at a fast pace,” said Ben Bennett, OpenTV’s Chief Executive Officer. “The growth of digital television in India is expected to be strong in the years ahead and we are dedicated to ensuring that our customers are well equipped to embrace this growth and provide their subscribers with advanced services that bring the excitement of the digital television experience to many homes in this dynamic country.”
OpenTV already has a presence in India, providing its middleware product to three of the country’s network operators: DishTV (Essel Group), BigTV (Reliance Communications) and Sun Direct.
