Commenting on the development, Jesse Bergsma, ShortsTV EMEA president, said: “We are delighted to partner with Magyar Telekom and further extend our distribution in Eastern Europe.
“In 2017, the Hungarian short film ‘Sing (Mindenki)’ won the Oscar for Best Short Film (Live Action), which demonstrates a huge interest in, and talent for, short films in Hungary. Magyar Telekom enables its subscribers to watch TV on the go across multiple devices, which is a perfect fit for ShortsTV, as our films are easily watched either at home or on your daily commute. Magyar Telekom is also the biggest platform in Hungary, so we are proud that ShortsTV is now a part of it.”
ShortsTV is the world’s first and only TV channel dedicated to short movies.
It is operated by Shorts International Ltd.
