London – TVT/DMC, the new global content services powerhouse, announced it has been selected to enable the delivery of FOX channel content to Dutch audiences. The Dutch FOX television channel becomes the latest addition to TVT/DMC’s fully operational, virtualised ‘private broadcast cloud’ – a European first. Officially launched in June 2017, the all-IP platform offers FOX unprecedented flexibility, scale and capacity, and the potential to extend the type and quality of services available to Dutch audiences.
FOX broadcasts a wide range of general entertainment content in the Netherlands, featuring leading television series, including American Horror Story, Empire, The Gifted, The Simpsons and The Walking Dead. FOX is the fourth channel that FOX Networks Group has launched with TVT/DMC, completing the consolidation of all FOX Benelux entertainment and factual channels on its private broadcast cloud. The launch of the Dutch channel on the platform follows the successful migration of 24 Kitchen, FOX Belgium and National Geographic. The channel is distributed using TVT/DMC’s fully managed European fibre network, which provides highly effective redundancy and disaster recovery management.
Jan de Vries, Director Broadcast Operations, FOX Networks Group, says: “Content delivery that we can count on is fundamentally important to our operations. We need to be sure our programmes will always arrive to our audiences, when they are scheduled and in the correct form. TVT/DMC provides the reliability and innovation that enables us to respond to the demands of today’s audiences.”
