Rhxo to launch live streaming TV technology in Turkey

Pazartesi, Mayıs 12th, 2014

As Aereo defends its live TV streaming service in front of the Supreme Court in the US, today Rhxo announces its streaming tv infrastructure to serve its clients in Turkey.

Rhxo Technology Group sees the online availability of this live broadcast content as a major move in the right direction for broadcasters and the media industry in general. The company asserts that services like Aereo should not be necessary, as the major networks should be going online themselves instead of missing the massive revenue opportunity from over 35 million Turkish web users who don’t subscribe to cable or premium platforms like Digiturk, D-Smart, Teledünya, etc. An even larger opportunity has been demonstrated in the global market with web audiences around the world seeking high quality scheduled content online.

Some networks are already setting the base for the shift to the web in the world, including MSNBC, QVC, CW, PBS and others, along with VOD offerings from major networks like ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX, but Rhxo views this as merely the beginning. Before long the networks will all move online, and Rhxo Technology Group is positioning itself to become the national aggregation point for all live, VOD and pay per view content available over the web in Turkish market.

“When people talk about live TV, aside from sporting events and award shows, what they’re really talking about is scheduled programming – much like a playlist on the web. Now we’re looking at scheduled programming as boundless and limitless, because it can be watched via internet using web browsers, mobile phones, tablets and even smart TVs all over the world. What’s happening now is that the faster broadband internet speed forcing the networks to go online, which will switch cable companies to become primarily bandwidth providers, and the economics will shift in that direction,” says Rhxo, CEO Mesut Darendeli.

The company plans for these live TV stations to work hand-in-hand with its newly launched original streaming platform, which will bring together niche content providers and networks from Turkey to create hundreds of 24/7 scheduled programming channels through Rhxo’s internet-based streaming technology.
