OwnZones Eyes OTT Entry on MVPD Platforms

OwnZones Media Network, a provider of VOD services for multiple platforms, is in position to extend a video bridge to MVPD set-top boxes and expand its international reach following a partnership with Metrological, a TV apps company with ties into operators such as Liberty Global and Comcast.

Under the agreement, OwnZones is a “preferred” provider for Metrological’s Application Platform, which brings apps and OTT content to operator devices and touts a footprint reach of more than 40 million homes and agreements with other providers that include KPN (the Netherlands), Tele Columbus (Germany) and Ooredoo (Qatar).
