We are thrilled to announce that Brightcove and Fox Entertainment Group (FEG) have entered a company-wide agreement enabling Fox's broadcast, cable and studio programmers to use the Brightcove Internet TV service to launch ad-supported Internet video channels on their websites, as well as consumer media campaigns.
Several cable networks have already used Brightcove to launch Internet video channels, including FX, SPEED and Fox.
With Brightcove, Fox will be able to roll out new properties at their own pace and monetize their distribution through online ad sales. David Baron, vice president, Fox Digital Media, explains, "This partnership helps further Fox's commitment to delivering premium entertainment programming to consumers and engaging fans in as many ways as possible. Brightcove's tools and services enable us to quickly and easily deploy broadband video on our network Web sites while retaining control over the quality, brand experience, and monetization of our content."
