Clearleap said it has scored a deal to handle set-top video-on-demand distribution for A+E Networks’s stable of brand/channels, including A&E, History, Lifetime, FYI, LMN and H2.
Clearleap said the partnership launched this month and is the first agreement between the companies, and includes the opportunity for Clearleap to support multiplatform services.
“The logistics of publishing on-demand content have become dramatically complex,” said Richard Shirley, A+E Networks’ VP of distribution business development, in a statement. “At A+E, we’re always looking to leverage technologies that will help us manage complexities and ensure the content viewers are looking for is available when they want it.”
“With this partnership, we have the opportunity to bolster A+E Networks’ extensive video offerings while working alongside one of the largest, most respected and premium brands in the pay-TV industry,” added Clearleap CEO Braxton Jarratt.
Other announced Clearleap customers include Scripps Networks Interactive, the BBC, HBO, Verizon Communications, Time Warner Cable, and In Demand, the MSO-owned distributor of video-on-demand and pay-per-view services.
