TVT has announced a deal to provide BBC World News video on Demand (VoD) content to Hulu Japan.

TVT will be starting its work as VoD provider for Hulu Japan with the fast turnaround of local content. TVT will be responsible for re-packaging and translating content and captioning into both English and Japanese, as well as managing all the related metadata for some of BBC World.

“Our experience of working within Japan and with the BBC is what truly makes this a great fit. VoD providers such as Hulu expect high quality and consistent content which conforms to their strict criteria for video encoding and metadata and our knowledge of the market and the requirements of VoD platforms means we are able to deliver exactly that,” comments Kim Thesiger of TVT. “We also pride ourselves on our tailored, bespoke approach to media management – it is something we really excel at. The new agreement with BBC World News complements the work we already do with them. We look forward to kick-starting our work for Hulu Japan, and helping to deliver great, local content.”
