Premium content specialist Vubiquity is talking to a number of retailers regarding the launch of a product that would allow consumers to buy digital content, initially movies, in high street shopping outlets.
As part of the prospective expansion into the digital retail spacee, Vubiquity has hired home entertainment and retail specialist Rob Salter, formerly CEO of Reverbz Media Ltd, who will head up the new initiative as Vice-President of Retail at Vubiquity.
“I am thrilled to be working with Vubiquity,” comments Salter. “We see an excellent opportunity to grow significant business in this channel. Retailers have driven the growth of home entertainment and the building of personal video collections since the first VHS tapes in the mid-1980s. We believe retailers will continue to be a key part of the future of selling video in the digital age. Vubiquity wants to support retailers’ ambitions to go on selling content to their customers in disc form, and also help them go beyond the disc into digital ownership and consumption.”
