As a result, Boss TV viewers can now subscribe to an a la carte offer that includes the MGU proprietary channels Ukraine 24, Ukraine 1/Ukraine 2 and NLO TV, as well as the traditional partner channels Star Cinema, Star Family, X-Sport and Fishing TV.
Commenting on the development, Oleksandr Remezovskyi, director of the pay channel distribution department, MGU, said: “We are strengthening the position of international distribution – we are launching Ukrainian packages one after another. This is the third provider with which we have signed such an agreement. Each of them has a high technical level. The partnership with Boss TV will reach the audience of Ukrainians in North and South America who consume content through gadgets such as tablets and smartphones, as well as via the internet”.
Jose Paternostro, director of global business development, Boss TV, added: “The Boss TV digital platform allows consumers to broadcast live and on-demand content, and offers a variety of marketing, data, and analytics tools that enable companies to make a profit and improve their interactions with their own audiences. With the help of our platform, MGU will have access to information about subscribers in real time, which will allow them to better understand the audience and manage their own business opportunities and content”.
MGU notes that its international channel Ukraine 24 can be received by 30 million households in over 15 countries. Furthermore, Ukrainian channel packages are already available in Portugal and Canada.
