TV New Zealand to Launch Video Stream Service on Google Chromecast

TVNZ, New Zealand’s free-to-air broadcaster, in partnership with Brightcove will launch its video streaming service on Google Chromecast.

Leveraging Brightcove’s server-side ad insertion technology (SSAI), TVNZ can now deliver a superior, TV-like experience for its TVNZ app through Google Chromecast. Use of SSAI means TVNZ can seamlessly integrate content and ads into the video stream, delivering a premium viewing experience without buffering or disruptions.

“We want to make TVNZ the online destination of choice for New Zealanders for free long form video, so we’re investing to ensure we’re delivering the content and the user experience our viewers are looking for. Our viewers will now be able to watch their favourite shows on Chromecast with the same ease and superior experience as they would if watching it direct from their TV,” said Greg Montgomery, GM Technology at TVNZ.

Brightcove is continuing to work with TVNZ to develop better video streaming solutions. TVNZ’s next focus will be launching an Apple TV app later this year.(C+T Mag)
