Friend MTS Joins AVIA to Intensify the Fight Against Piracy in the RegionDecember 19, 2023 3:00 pm
Friend MTS currently has an impressive list of customers which includes Sky, the Premier League, UEFA, Warner Bros Discovery, BBC Studios, Serie A, WWE, Bell Canada and Rogers Sports & Media. The intention is to grow that list to soon add clients in APAC that will benefit from the company’s reputable expertise. We all know that fighting piracy for our customers doesn’t just mean monitoring, identifying and securing the content – it is also about converting those subscribers into legitimate views thereby growing the business.
Joining AVIA is particularly timely as Friend MTS has recently opened brand new offices in Singapore as part of the company’s continued commitment to grow and expand in APAC. Since the new ownership by North Edge following the investment in 2022, the company has been investing in all parts of the business, including Engineering and R&D which so far has grown by 20%, as well as increasing its footprint across the regions. This shows how much the company is committed to working with local broadcasters, OTT operators and rights holders to help protect their content and revenue and ultimately grow their business.
As industry partnerships and raising awareness within the wider community are key in combating illegal video redistribution, Friend MTS trusts that an institution like AVIA, with 25 years of knowledge and action in the field, will help develop strong links with various industry players such as internet service providers (ISPs) as well as policymakers and local enforcement institutions to tackle the issue of piracy.
