British Prime Minister’s Office Teams with Brightcove for Government Online Video Initiative

We are very excited to announce that the British Prime Minister's Office, 10 Downing Street, has chosen the Brightcove platform for its official online video destination on the Web, Number10TV. New website offerings will include exclusive video of the Prime Minister speeches, press conferences, media appearances, and news archives.

The 10 Downing Street initiative reflects a broader trend among government agencies, political campaigns and non-profit organizations using online video to boost the flow of information between citizens and government. These Brightcove customers include Barack Obama for President, AFL-CIO, among others. We are thrilled to see the broad, horizontal adoption of the Brightcove platform across non-traditional media publishers and we look forward to showcasing other exciting examples of this trend over the coming months.
