Mediacorp seals new deal with Thai OTV Network
Starting this year, Thai viewers will be able to catch 400 hours of Mediacorp’s titles on OTV Network’s new OTT platform.
Singapore terrestrial broadcaster and multimedia network Mediacorp has recently established an agreement with Thailand-based media company OTV Network.
Under this partnership, 400 hours of Mediacorp’s drama titles — with genres ranging from action to family and romance — will be available on OTV Network’s new over-the-top (OTT) platform. The dramas will be available on the OTT platform before the end of December, starting with titles such as The Dream Job, Yes We Can! and Tiger Mum.
This, according to Suzie Wang, vice-president of content distribution for Mediacorp Studios, is the largest number of hours of Chinese content OTV Network acquired from a single distributor to date. She elaborated: “With Mediacorp’s dramas already gaining traction in most South-east Asian countries, OTV Network hopes to boost its Chinese content offering to appeal to the new markets it is expanding into.”
