Republic TV has teamed up with Brightcove to launch its online video offering, Republicworld.com. Republic TV delivers content to viewers across satellite, cable channels, and online via 24/7 simulcast. Launched in July 2017, Republicworld.com has delivered over four million video views with an average video watch time of over 20 minutes on its website streamed live and on-demand. Audiences across the world view live debates, in various player format options, and get customized experiences on mobile and desktop.
Brightcove has an in-built OVP that suits channels workflow; a fast video player supported 360 videos out of the box and upcoming support for H.265. Plus, Brightcove’s technology stack with open APIs made it real easy for the channel to integrate across existing platforms, streamline workflow, and go live swiftly.
Republic TV is focused on delivering the kind of innovative content experiences that consumers cannot get anywhere else. Vertical videos created specifically for a highly mobile audience, audience interaction within the video player and virtual reality are key drivers that the channel believes will be helpful in achieving the target. An upcoming mobile App launch will also deliver a whole new way of experiencing and interacting with available content.
