International Marketing Services and My-HD Media Partner with Knetik Media

International Marketing Services and My-HD Media have just formed a partnership with Knetik Media, a company that develops the means for the delivery of over-the-top video, media and gaming. Within this partnership, the three companies will work toward establishing content delivery services for consumers in Southern Asia and the Middle East.

IMS, a company specializing in the sales and marketing of electronic products – together with My-HD Media, an affordable television platform that grabs high-def satellite broadcasts – carry the responsibility of taking Knetik Media's over-the-top content directly to customers in the GCC, Levant and North Africa. This great collaboration between the three companies is due to expand now, taking their streaming video services to countries in the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, through set-top boxes that come pre-packaged with the OTT applications.

Abdollah Hadadi, operator and business account manager of IMS, said, "We are excited to work with My-HD Media and Knetik Media to supply both popular and unique content to a rapidly growing demographic of consumers that are demanding it. We are working together to provide solutions that will enable more users to experience a service that offers a wide selection and depth of entertainment unparalleled to what is currently being broadcasted on mainstream channels."

Knetik Media CEO Shane Robinett said, "In addition to the hungry expat market within the middle-east, communities outside of the region are hungry for content from shows and media back home. Our objective with this partnership is to provide a wide range of content, shows, and films to the audience when and where they want. We're expecting tremendous growth in this market and have worked hard to develop outstanding local and regional content relationships."

Right now, Knetik Media is undertaking a project that will provide streaming video content to multi-screen devices in Middle Eastern markets. We'll see more, later this month.
