eoTV Counts On MX1 to Deliver All Services From a Single Source

Sept. 15, 2017 — MX1, a global media services company that transforms content into the ultimate viewer experience, announced today that it has been chosen by German TV station eoTV to handle all content management, playout, uplink, and distribution services via satellite for free-to-air TV. MX1 is also managing the broadcaster’s signal supply for HbbTV applications and to livestream online platforms such as freenet TV connect and Zattoo. Additionally, by using the MX1 360 end-to-end media services platform, eoTV can more efficiently manage, deliver, and market its content. The 24/7 broadcaster specializes in European TV shows and broadcasts via Astra 19.2 degrees East.

“We are pooling all services for the preparation and distribution of our content via satellite and the internet, and we chose MX1 because they are a very experienced and reliable partner,” said Juergen Hörner, CEO of eoTV. “The central processing through MX1 enables eoTV to easily manage and distribute its content via different channels, boosting efficiency.”

“This collaboration demonstrates that we are a one-stop video shop, supporting the entire range of services — from data preparation to content distribution via linear and nonlinear channels,” said Sophie Lersch, chief customer experience officer of MX1.
