EBS has signed a deal with Viasat World to provide all the VoD metadata for its TV1000 Russian Kino catalogue of films on Amazon Channels in the UK and Germany.

This marks the first time EBS' metadata and scheduling solution Pawa2 has been used on a web-based VoD channel.

“It’s such an exciting time in the industry,” said EBS managing director Keith Bedford. “Consumers have an incredible variety of content at their fingertips, and at least as many choices about how they want to access that content.” 

“The TV1000 Russian Kino Amazon channel is the perfect example of this, and we’re really proud that Viasat World has seen the benefits of applying Pawa2 to a service with so much global potential.” 

Lena Koskela, head of planning at Viasat World added, “Launching TV1000 Russian Kino on Amazon Prime complements our core business. It demonstrates Viasat World’s unique status as an independent company, and our ability to be quick to adopt the best new technologies so we can better serve our partners and our audiences in today's fast changing media landscape.”
