Leading white-label video publishing company thePlatform has been selected to provide the back-end video management for MENA SVOD service STARZ PLAY Arabia.

The new service relies upon thePlatform’s cloud-based mpx video publishing system to support viewers across a variety of IP-connected devices.

“We’re fully committed to giving people a groundbreaking subscription video service leveraging STARZ PLAY Arabia’s incredible content library and brand,” said Saleem Bhatti, CIO of STARZ PLAY Arabia. “Part of that commitment means using a back-end system with proven scale and versatility, which is why we turned to thePlatform.”
