Earlier this week BrainTV, a non-profit media project that aims to cultivate IT specialists in Ukraine, launched in beta mode on multimedia OTT service Divan.TV in 200 countries around the world.
The channel has become the first Ukrainian one to provide access to educational content about IT. Already included in its free programs are Harvard’s CS50 course, computer programming courses from Ukrainian IT schools, interviews with Ukrainian startup entrepreneurs and investors, video reports from industry events, and other features.
Last month Ukraine-based multiscreen OTT service Divan.TV, which focuses on Russian and Ukrainian audiences worldwide, announced that their Smart TVs app has been made available in 200 countries — beyond Europe, Israel and the USA where it was available previously only on tablets and in web version.
The content is customized depending on the region, with television channels combined in packages according to subscribers’ interests. From 70 to 200 channels are available in such categories as local, entertainment, education, etc.
Content-creators now have the ability to broadcast videos or even launch and monetize their own channels through Divan.TV, a Ukrainian multiscreen OTT service that targets Ukrainian and Russian-speaking users around the globe.
Advantages of using this service, in contrast with that of YouTube, lies in the fact that the owner of the channel will receive coverage not only online, but also in 200 countries around the world through Smart TV, without having to invest additional funding for distribution.
Divan.TV, a Ukrainian developer of OTT middleware and pay TV channels with 125,000 users in Ukraine, has made its programs available worldwide, targeting Russian- and Ukrainian speaking audiences.
According to the company, this audience reaches about 80 million households in total, including 16 million in Ukraine, 32 million in Russia and more than 30 million in other countries across the globe. This corresponds to an up to 300-million global audience.
