Netgem is to supply regional provider Origin broadband with a new multiscreen TV service.
Origin TV has been designed as an alternative to some of the pay-TV offerings and draws on content from the public service broadcasters and streaming services including Amazon Prime Video, Rakuten TV and Britbox.
“Origin has enjoyed double-digit growth in a highly competitive marketplace, and the low-cost yet high-quality and flexible television service provided by Netgem was the perfect tool to continue to drive that growth forwards,” said Oliver Bryssau, CEO, Origin Broadband. “Netgem allows us to provide a genuine value broadband and video package alternative to the £50/m and upwards routinely charged by our competitors, and has allowed us to do so quickly and with very little capital exposure.”
“The altnets are seeing great success in the currently challenging economy and we believe that adding flexible, high quality and value-conscious video services to their offering, as Origin Broadband has just done, will help continue to drive their growth forward and increase customer loyalty,” added Sylvain Thevenot, Chief Commercial and Customer Officer, Netgem TV.
Rotherham-based Origin Broadband was established in 2011.
