Rakuten TV allies with OKAST for increasing the offering of European premium FAST channels
Rakuten TV, European streaming platform, has allied with OKAST Channels with the goal of distributing and monetizing new premium European-based FAST channels. The Japanese born platform will distribute a selection of FAST channels in different European territories, as they were convinced by the portfolio of premium channels proposed by OKAST. This partnership is part of the strategy of the European consortium FAST4EU, created by OKAST, to develop a European ecosystem to address the FAST market.
Cédric Monnier, Co-founder, CEO at OKAST, commented: “We’re particularly proud of being able to distribute premium channels on a key platform like Rakuten TV. As a key platform in Europe, and committed to rich and local content, Rakuten TV’s large footprint will give an unprecedent opportunity for European content to reach a bigger audience”.
