Content aggregation and distribution company Alchimie has announced a partnership with Huawei which will see millions of Huawei Video consumers have access to a number of factual SVOD channels.
The partnership will see Alchimie’s TVplayer GO! App integrated with Huawei Video, which is available on all Huawei devices in thirteen countries across Europe, Scandinavia, Middle East, Africa and Asia. The app will carry up to nine regularly refreshed, specialist factual channels from Alchimie.
In particular, the €4.99 per month app will be distributed to Huawei consumers as territory specific channel apps for UK, Germany, France, and Spain along with an international English language service for Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, UAE, Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines, and South Africa.
All apps will feature channels dedicated to current affairs, kids, and travel, with between four and nine themed factual channels specific to each country. 300 hours of localised content will complement 50,000 hours of Alchimie’s portfolio.
CEO and founder of Alchimie, Nicolas d’Hueppe said: “In a world where we are bombarded by content, information and news, there is a growing demand for programmes that not only entertain, but give authentic, accurate information and insight to the world around us.
“Through partnering with some of the world’s most awarded producers and extending our distribution network with Huawei Video we can introduce these fantastic programmes to millions of new viewers, and generate new revenues for rights holders.”
