Vubiquity Opens Digital Storefront for Latin America

Vubiquity said it is setting its sights on the OTT market in Latin America with the debut of a managed digital storefront product for the region.

Vubiquity said the product, to debut at next week's Andina Link show in Colombia, expands on the company’s current work with telecom operators in the region with a suite of content services, including content acquisition licensing, scheduling, programming and processing and marketing support. Vubiquity has already launched digital storefronts with partners in other regions, including North America, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

It  added that the new digital storefront for the region provides a “white-label” portal for partners and content distributors that also links access to Vubiquity’s film and TV catalog alongside studio-approved DRM, and support for various business models, including subscription VOD, free, ad-supported VOD, electronic sell through and live TV.

Vubiquity said the storefront for Latin America supports Web browsers, iOS and Android mobile devices, and set-top boxes.

"The telecoms market in Latin America is especially competitive and complex, and our storefront provides service providers with the edge they need over other OTT providers,” Hector Rodriguez, Vubiquity’s VP for the Latin America region, said in a statement.
