French video tech content enabler Alchimie will be able to offer ORF-Enterprise’s extensive catalogue of German-language premium factual programming on its themed video-on-demand (VOD) channels.
The collaboration follows a content distribution agreement Alchimie signed with the Austrian public broadcaster ORF’s sales and distribution subsidiary, adding around 50 hours of content, focussing on topics such as wildlife & nature, current affairs, people & places, science, environment & globalisation, to Alchimie’s library of 40,000 hours of multi-language factual programming.
Alchimie offers more than 150 VOD subscription channels on over 40 digital platforms and mobile networks across Europe including A1 in Austria, Vodafone in Germany and Switzerland.
Alchimie themes, curates and promotes its channels to generate new audiences for existing content. Working in partnership with rights holders and owners on a revenue share basis, the company provides digitisation, translation, subtitles and dubbing services for premium content, delivered as part of its channel bouquets.
