OTT Globo Play from Brazil prepares its international expansion

 

The OTT service Globo Play from Brazil prepares its international expansion in 2016, revealed the Director of International Business of Free-to-Air network Globo, Ricardo Scalamandré, to the ttvnews.com website. As well, the platform would have reached five million downloads.

 

“Our plan now is to launch the platform outside Brazil, starting with the Portuguese-speaking countries and then continue throughout the rest of the world”, said Scalamandré during the Miptv trade show, held in the French city of Cannes.

 

The CEO of Globo, Carlos Henrique Schroder, stated in late February to the American magazine Variety that Globo Play reached 205.6 million video views up to January 20th, in its first report since its launch in November 2015.
