20 de octubre de 2016

Stingray is growing its classical music offering with the acquisition of 600 hours of exclusive pre-2013 concerts and documentaries from Berlin-based EuroArts.

EuroArts will continue to distribute the acquired programs and will maintain its distribution, acquisition and production businesses.

The multiplatform services provider has secured worldwide rights to EuroArts’ back catalogue as well as an option to purchase all future content.

“To compete in today’s media landscape, working with the best content producers and distributors is paramount,” said Eric Boyko, president, co-founder and CEO of Stingray. “This latest acquisition will benefit all our services, and exponentially grow our linear and on demand offering. Quickly responding to market demands and providing operators with premium, quality content across all platforms is key to our growth strategy.”

Furthermore, Stingray and EuroArts have established a long-term partnership whereby EuroArts will be Stingray’s exclusive distributor of the acquired programs. EuroArts thus becomes Stingray’s first content distribution partner.
