This Fall 2016, multicultural communities that once had limited access to content from their home country will now be able to view premium online video content on a new international OTT service, JungoTV. JungoTV is the first of it’s kind to serve a global multi-lingual community – truly “Entertainment Without Borders.”

Co-founded by television personality, surgeon and media entrepreneur, Dr. Oz, this service is underpinned by Piksel Digital Showcase™, an OTT platform in a box, that delivers more content to more devices, quicker than ever before. Dr Oz shares his thoughts on the launch:

In launching The Dr. Oz Show around the globe, it was apparent to me that the market for international content was growing rapidly. The launch of JungoTV, the first premium service of its kind to serve a global multi-lingual community, will allow us to provide top quality programming from customers’ home countries and reconnect them with their culture and lifestyle. Piksel’s expertise has been instrumental in helping us build a secure plan for success, and with its heritage in the OTT market building video technology platforms, we will go to market with a best-of-breed multi-channel solution quickly.

 

Wondering why JungoTV chose to work with Piksel? Here's what co-founder and CEO George Chung had to say:

When I was looking for a technology partner for my business, I did a comprehensive analysis of the OTT video platforms commercially available and Piksel Digital Showcase truly was best in breed. I am excited to join forces with Piksel on JungoTV to bring international content to underserved ethnic communities globally. Working with Piksel’s product and services allows my team to realize the next-generation television distribution model that is available to us. Piksel Digital Showcase, built on the Piksel Palette™, provides scalability, performance, and a rich user interface that will enable my business to grow, and bring expats even closer to the video content they know and love from their homeland and language.

JungoTV’s international OTT service will be available throughout the USA and Canada with over 30,000 hours of premium on demand programming targeting in-language communities of Arabic, Chinese, Filipino, Greek, Iranian, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese speakers.
