Partnership Offers Video Streaming

Mobile TV enabler Gorillabox and new media entertainment content aggregator TIM w.e., have announced a partnership to provide video streaming capabilities to mobile operators. Gorillabox and TIM w.e. will co-operate on a non-exclusive basis to deploy the Gorillabox video streaming platform (the g-box platform) and to retail video content. TIM w.e. manages content for mobile operators such as Telefonica, Vodafone and Tigo in almost 60 countries, and the agreement is global in scope.
The companies say that discussions are already underway with a number of operators in Europe and South America, who are seeking a carrier-grade mobile streaming capability and a range of live channels which can be easily deployed and are language-free.
While our existing platform covered the basic requirements that operators were receiving from their consumers, we needed an advanced video streaming platform, says Thomas Kothuis, Chief Commercial Officer at TIM w.e. Gorillabox is the ideal partner for us with its g-box platform, through which the video streaming is powered. Gorillabox also allows the service provision to be tailored for each client and its demands accordingly, meaning we can cater for each customer individually and continue maintaining good relationships with our clients.
Gorillabox and TIM w.e. will cooperate on all video streaming deployment and will also offer a range of video content.
Its a great opportunity for Gorillabox, says Gorillabox CEO and Founder Christian Harris. This partnership will provide us with lots of scale over a short timeframe, and working with TIM w.e. globally with many different operators will open up new avenues for us.
