Hybrid IPTV software developer, Digisoft.tv, and South African digital marketing training company, Discover Digital, have outlined plans to jointly deliver Over-the-top (OTT) Transactional VOD (T-VOD)educational and entertainment content in remote and poorly connected areas of South Africa.
“The African market offers a unique opportunity for a hybrid OTT and digital content delivery offering,” said John Watson, chairman of Discover Digital. “We aim to be a key player in the VOD entertainment market in partnerships with both fixed-line and mobile network operators, and provide greater access to key educational content.”
Digisoft.tv will manage the project from its headquarters in Cork, Ireland. Meanwhile, Discover Digital also plans to launch a full OTT T-VOD and Subscription VOD (S-VOD) solution for the sub-Saharan African market in 2014.
