Piksel will henceforth offer a service managing all stages of the content acquisition process for new OTT players, including content rights, and have added Monica Piriz as VP of Content Acquisition and Strategy to drive the new division
Piksel Content Services is set up to appeal to the growing number of businesses (telcos and internet service providers for example) that have subscriber bases and potential audiences but lack the content and relationships with studios needed to venture into OTT video delivery.
“I’m excited to join Piksel at such a pivotal time for the company, as it makes a game-changing move to open up the OTT market to a whole new segment,” comments Monica Piriz. “The potential for a new wave of OTT players from less ‘traditional’ backgrounds has been growing for a while, but until now there hasn’t been the right incentive out there to support businesses wanting to make this leap. Piksel is now bridging that gap but without the usual price-tag, and taking a compelling proposition to this new sector.”
