A Brussels-based publication covering diplomacy, business, finance and culture is to launch its own OTT channel.Diplomatic World has entered a partnership with Magine Pro to run a global service on the Magine Pro platform.
Ola Steinsrud, the founder of TVNorge, who is heading the project told Broadband TV News the audience numbered one million officials worldwide in a very specific target group.
“Diplomatic World magazine has been sold and distributed for more than 15 years in the diplomacy circles of EU members, bureaucrats, politicians, lawyers and other decision-makers. Two years ago its founder Barbara Dietrich and I decided to take the next step and launch an OTT service based on the same values and goals as that of the magazine.”
Diplomatic World is well established in the diplomatic political communities around the world. Othman al Omeir, one of the most influential journalists and media entrepreneurs in the Middle East and the Arab world, recently joined the publication as an investor.
The launch date of the Diplomatic World streaming service will be announced in Q1 2022.
