Also, the new agreement between the companies will allow El Garage TV to multiply the number of OTT broadband channels and its 24/7 available line up of content to its fans in Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
“Based on trends and consumption habits, we decided to transmit our live programs over the Internet,” said Elhaiek Ignacio, Executive Producer of El Garage TV. “We wanted to provide our audience with the experience of watching El Garage TV with their choice of device, rather than traditional television. With multiscreen delivery to broadband connected devices, Sersat Alive has enabled us to project our content to a global audience.”
